INCREASING MY WORDS

I must be doing something wrong. I earn at least 500 points each week but my words haven't increased in weeks. I have been on 917 word for as long as I can remember. Can you tell me how to increase them?

It seems you are currently doing verbs lesson which teach you different tenses.

From what I understand, duolingo counts different tenses of a single verb just as a single word. Thus, if you learned "I eat", "I ate", "He ate", "He will eat", and so on, then still duolingo just counts this as one word.

Thus, is seems certainly ok if you did not see any increase in the number of words!
