HOW ARE LEVELS REACHED?

Are levels a function of Total XPs gained? If so, can one attain a high level by going very slowly into the language? I'm trying to see how it works. kind regards Andy

Theoretically, you can reach level 25 by doing the first lesson over and over again. The level just displays the total number of XP earned, be it for learning new skills or strengthening old ones.
You can work your way through the language tree at the pace that works best for you. Some people finish a tree at level 11, others at 15 or 16 - and some at 20+.

you have to complete a certain amount of skills. You don't lose levels because you have always completed a skill unless you reset. However, you should probably still strengthen those skills

I see. So what do XPs represent? successful answers, or answers attempted? I'm "454 Xps away from the next level" but I seem to get XPs by just going over stuff...not by gaining new skills

No, you gain a level when you have enough experience. You get 10 xp when you complete a lesson, 10 xp when you strengthen one, etc.

So is a "Level" determined by the "number of skills" acquired ( Verbs, adverbs, etc.) or "total number of xp's"?

My understanding is total XP. If you go to your profile page, on the right hand side you'll find a "LANGUAGES" section. Mine says:

LANGUAGES Norwegian (Bokmål) - Level 13 Next Level: 392 XP Total XP: 5608 XP

So I need 392 more experience points to move up to level 14.

Every time you complete a lesson, you receive 10 XP points, whether you repeat the same lesson ('strengthen skills') or finish a new lesson. You can go at your own pace, repeating lessons as you see fit until you feel you understand and remember the words, but you will still receive XP points and level up.
