  5. Freezing a streak

Freezing a streak

Because of circumstances I can't help (believe me...) I won't have any touch with civilization for about a week in august. I would really hate losing my then-to-be about 90 days streak. Is there some way in which I can freeze my streak for one week, other than earning enough lingots by than and asking a friend to freeze it each morning? Many thanks(:

Similar suggestion, you could find a trustworthy friend to just take the Basic 1 lesson each day. That way if you don't have enough Lingots, it's no problem and your friend could become proficient with Italian.

That's actually not a bad idea, and I might just do that! thanks(:

I have the same issue, will be backpacking in the wilderness for at least three, possibly more, days. I'm on a 150 day streak! I have many lingots... but I've never used the freeze streak feature. So can someone clarify, you have to spend lingots to freeze each day? I cannot freeze it by "pre-paying" for a couple of days freezing? Thanks for the help!

nope. once you get a streak freeze in the lingot store, it simply says "equipped", and there's no way to purchase multiple streak freezes.

Sadly, you can't do that. :( Here, have a lingot, sorry for your trouble!

Dear friends! Luckily, I was called off my reserve duty.. So I won't have to pull any streak-freezing tricks. Therefor, I give you all your lingots back. Thank you so much, even if it's just virtual currency, I really appreciate it(:


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/indiangurl13

Aw, thank you! Have ten lingots back for your generosity :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Alon-j

Well since I saved up so much, and for good karma, I gave each of you 4 lingots, so have a heart refill on me ;-) because you were all so nice :)
