What qualifies as a streak? is it just practicing each day?
Hi LauraLodge1, there are a few different kind of streaks depending on the platform and if you ever change time zones things can get a little more complicated. Here is a link to more info about how all of the streaks work and how to keep yours (see Streak Freeze for a safety net) http://duolingo.wikia.com/wiki/Streak
Good luck with your studies! And feel free to check out the other guides on that wiki. They are pretty handy. :)
