[BUG] offline studying records activity only on day when reconnecting to the Internet

I don’t think it’s a bug, as I think it’s been intentionally designed like this, because it’s easy, but offline activity (such as listening offline) records the activity only on the day when you reconnect to the Internet.

For example, Sep 1 = 2 hours listening (offline), Sep 2 = 1 hour listening (offline), Sep 3 = 1 hour listening (offline), Sep 4 = 0 hours of listening, but reconnected to the Internet. LingQ will record 4 hours of listening done on Sep 4, when in reality I did no listening on this day.

For overall statistics, this works fine. But if you are trying to keep a streak, it does not work.

The other month, I had one day away from Internet access, but I still did my listening practice. Obviously, LingQ thinks I missed a day and so I lost my streak. The problem (this is actually a bug) was that because it recorded activity on the day I reconnected, I now had a one day streak and it would not let me press the ‘repair it!’ button, because it said “The streak is not broken.” See screenshot.

Not sure if there’s much we can do here, if you are using the app offline, our servers can’t track on what dates you did your work. I’ll check with our team.


I just experienced the same thing. I finally got back on track and suddenly I am back to day 1. Not that it will impact me, but that streak is something that does give you extra motivation. Especially when you have a nice streak rate going along. For my German I was almost nearing the 100 days studying daily. And Korean I was on my 30th. But now back to one again. It somehow does feel like a grade, and you’re being thrown back to start.
What I mean to say with this is: a streak can be motivating, but when starting anew due to travels it hurts a little bit.
