Test outs disappear?

Hello!

I'm a Finn but my mother language is swedish. Since I live in Finland, it's not very often that I get to speak swedish. Mainly just with my mother.

Thing is, I wanted to refresh my swedish, but the swedish here is way too easy for me. So I attempted to do the test out of 40-something a few times but I always failed because of misspelling or with using synonyms. After a few tries, the test outs disappeared. It's really frustrating to start from the beginning with a language that's basically my native language (I speak finnish better since I use it more frequently, but I understand swedish just as well as finnish).

So my question is, do the test outs become available anymore? At all? This must be a problem for many of other users here, too.

Thanks to whoever answers!

-Kim

Ps. varsågod och svara på antingen engelska eller svenska, hur ni än vill :)

Just "unlearn" the language (you can do that in the settings in your profile), and then re-start learning it. You should see the Test-out option again.

You can test out of individual skills rather than doing the placement test. With that option, you have a sneak peek at most of the vocabulary. It may still feel a bit slow and tedious but is still faster than the lesson by lesson option. Testing out skill by skill also awards a lingot for a perfect score and two for completing the skill.
