Why is there such an inconsistency with weakened skills between different languages?

Hi!

When I am strengthening German, I get around 20+ skills to strengthen daily.

When I am strengthening Norwegian, I get around 4 skills to strengthen daily.

When I am strengthening Esperanto, I get around 1 -2 skills to strengthen daily.

Why do I have to strengthen so much German skills? I'm not bad at it. My father is from Germany so it comes natural to me. Is it a bug? Strengthening German alone takes 1 hour, so it's nearly impossible to learn new things.

It would be great to get this sorted out.

Thanks for your help:)

I guess it depends on the speed the skills were initially learned.
If you proceed slowly through a tree, with lots of repetition, skills take longer to decay. When something scomes to you easily, you do lots of new skills which then later all lose their golden status at the same time.
Doing all the 20 German skills at once will lead to all of them decaying together again in a few weeks.

I am taking my time to do the German tree, but the skills that lose their gold colour are ones which I need to strengthen every day.

That's decidedly weird.

I'm learning German and Esperanto too, and for me it's exactly the other way round: some 5 German skills to strengthen daily vs 10+ Esperanto skills :)

Duolingo said they fixed it, but it seems like they didn't!
