How do you move to next level?

A similar question was asked but not answered (and I did read the wiki link). I have been doing the same 1, 2, 3 basics every day. It just gives me the option of redoing each set or strengthening. I've done each of these about a dozen times. The other sets are in gray so I can't click on them to open them up. Do you have to practice the same units until the program decides you are ready to proceed. I get about 98% correct in each of the first three units. I love the program but I need to advance - help! BTW I'm using an iPad if that makes a difference. Thanks.

It looks like you are ready to start with Common Phrases.

I'm glad you checked. When I did, it said "Lesson 1 Common Time" I was confused because I don't have a Common Time skill on my Spanish tree.

Thank you. This was very helpful and I figured it out. Thanks everyone. Apparently I'm an idiot but I understand now what was going on.

When you finish a lesson you can go ahead , it is not necessary to do it again and again, it will be always there after the first time. If there is a bug, I advice you to do another account once you are only level 4, you can just take the "test out" from these 3 lessons.

Well it makes sense that I shouldn't have to do each icon over and over again but the program won't let me do anything else. Only the first 3 icons are in color - the rest are in gray and can't be opened.

I just logged in on my laptop and it's the same situation. The first 3 icons are in color and I can do them over and over and over - but all the other icons are gray and can't be opened. It says I am at 13% fluency which is impossible since I have only completed the first 3 basic icons. Is there any technical support people who monitor these discussions? I am totally bummed that I can't continue. There has to be a way to fix this.

If all else fails, reset the course and take the placement test. This should allow you to test out of the three skills you've already done if you know the material well now. You can reset the language here https://www.duolingo.com/settings/direction

It only offers testing out of the first 6 skills - I've only done the first 3. I took a screen shot but can't figure out how to upload it here????

Paste the screenshot into your paint program or otherwise find a way to save the file. Then go to imgur.com and upload the file. Right click and select "copy image url". Post that URL here.
