Believe it or not I just figured it out, it is because as soon as you finish they all change colour to yellow but the different colours are the colour they start out red blue and green. I thought at the beginning I was getting red because of mistakes but I was still getting red no matter what so hopefully I am right and it just the colour it is in the starting picture but thank you

Yes - you are right - the colors at the start of a task - is just a color - to make the language learning tree look bright and colorful. Then when the algorithm decides you have successfully conquered that skill for this time around, it changes the color to gold (yellow). People also refer to this as "gilding the tree", as in turning the tree all to gold.
