Can't master skills

I don't see any master lessons in skills, but all my friends have them.

Shhh! You're in a secret test :)

What does that mean?

Do share when you find out, I think we are all curious. :)

Same for me - i donĀ“t see the "envelopes" with real world translations which should come up after i learned a lesson...

They were removed for everyone recently. You can translate anything you choose in Immersion section.

I see, so the only way to "master" a skill recently is by having former knowledge of the section? Because i see that friends do still master skills.

There is no separate "learn" and "master" now. When you pass all the lessons of the unit, you "master" it. However, your word strength decays with time and you have to practice mastered skills if you want to keep them golden.

Thanks Olimo. I just wonder because i see in my friends stream that they sometimes master skills and when i look into my stream i only see that i "learn" skills when i completed them.

I guess that means the same. You get a "Mastered" cup even though it says you "learned" the lesson.
