The spanish program hasn't worked at all for two days

At first, I noticed that the format was different and thought "Cool, I wonder what other changes have been made." However, the next thing I noticed was that the program no longer works for me. For example, when I click on 'Basics' and then click on one of the three lessons, all I get is a blank screen and audio of a woman saying a sentence in Spanish. Also bummed because, despite attempting to do a lesson yesterday, my 'days' streak disappeared.

I'm experiencing a similar problem in French. I used to use the Lesson Practice button, but that seems to have disappeared. And I'm getting blank practice screens when I do a basic skill.

I have the same problem. In my opinion the problem is the old version (Safari 5.0.6 with os X 10.5.8). I have tried with Spanish and Frensh lessons und lost 25 lingots because I wanted to do a certificate.

My big question is now: Could you solve the problem? I have this problem only since yesterday (since I saw the new web design). Luckily I can use Duolingo on the app.

Same here!

What browser are you using? What type of internet connection are you on?

Safari 5.0.6 with OS x 10.5.8. dsara (below) may be right.

My problem is only occasional, to write in Spanish for what is spoken in Spanish, and every now and then I hear nothing, which is annoying because I can be almost finished and then 3 of the same type of questions appear and I am sunk! I have to skip to move on, which loses me a heart. Sometimes I guess and twice I have guessed correctly which is amazing or another bug. I have tried sending an email using the contact us button but nothing happens when I click that button!! Everything else works perfectly so it is not my machine.

I just started and I am having the exact same issue. There is a woman saying a sentence in spanish and it won't do anything else. There is no change when I respond and hit enter.

We have pushed a change that should allow Duolingo to work with Safari 5.0.6. If you were previously using this browser, please let me know if this fixes the issue for you. Thanks!

It still doesn't work for me. Thanks for trying!

I had the same problem with Safari 5.0.6. on a Mac 10.5.8. That was the first day of the upgrade. Now I can't log in at all; the page just refreshes to the Duolingo home page every time. I tried to download Firefox & Chrome but my old computer won't support them (but still works fine otherwise)! So I'm limited to my phone version.

Safari 5.0.6 should now be working. Thanks for your patience.
