Duolingo website not recording ANY progress on slow connection

Ok I admit it: My internet connection is terrible. But it's good enough to post this, and it's good enough to load lessons and do all the exercises...only to have it say "Please wait..." at the end and then nothing happens. After a few minutes, if I refresh the page, my progress was not recorded. I can do lessons, practice, etc, but it won't record ANY progress. If the issue can't be fixed today I suppose my day count will reset to zero. Can this be fixed?

Buy a "streak freeze" in Duolingo's lingot shop

General tips

Unfortunately, Duolingo's servers are very slow in synchronizing the data on your device and the databases on their servers.


1) Never log out Duolingo or your device before you have forced the synchronisation:

  • App:
    Select another course in the App
    Tap the flame icon to check if it still shows "You've met your daily goal"

    Refresh your browser.

2) Check the synchronisation in your personal (unofficial, but very useful) progress page

yeah, I'm seeing something similar.... seems to be a server side problem
