An issue with Practice Weakest Words

...or I may not understand something. I'm sorry if it's a duplicate, I searched to the best of my ability. When I order the words in my vocabulary according to strength, there is one word that keeps coming up on top. It gets weaker and weaker, it's only one golden bar by now. When I click "Practice Weakest Words" I get to practice, but that particular word never apears. I keeps getting weaker and weaker. It's my weakest word according the the algorithm, so shouldn't it be on the practice? Thanks in advance.

I have the same issue with the word población in my Spanish tree. It's probably been there for about a month now.

Mine is the German Wieveil. :-)

You can specifically select that word to practice. If you click on the word it takes you to it's page and gives you more detail and a "practice" button.

Thanks, I'm still wondering why it doesn't come up on the "weakest words" practice, since it is my weakest word.

Right, that would fix our problem, but not solve the underlining issue causing this.

True, it's just a stopgap.

I'm still having this problem today in spanish - caminas; and amarillos are two that seem to be struggling.
