Why do I always lose my strengthened skills? I know you can strengthen them but it's so much effort as you have to do each on again. Is there anything else I can do to strengthen?
All I do to keep everything up to date is click the strengthen skills button on the lower right hand side of the screen daily and it keeps me gold. Granted I probably do anywhere between 10-25 of those a day.
Not really, as repetition is pretty much obligatory to learn a language. That's why that function exists. The further you get, the slower the early ones ungild though, so it gets better. Just keep at it.
