Can't Access Lesson 3 of Slang Skill

I've completed every lesson in the tree, including Slang 4 and 5, which I accessed via URL, but whenever I try to start lesson 3, it just takes me back to the main page. What's happening there?

Eventually I just tested out, but that took a lot of trial and error. It would have been better to complete the skill the normal way.

Mrballpeen, RayChow1, and I are experiencing the same issue. See https://www.duolingo.com/comment/16535309 for more info. I reported a bug a few weeks ago and haven't heard back yet.

I hadn't thought to try to access the fourth and fifth lesson - thanks!


I did this (copying each sentence to a file as I went along) and was eventually able to test out and finish the tree today.


I was able to access the fourth and fifth lessons at https://www.duolingo.com/skill/vi/Informal-Expressions/4 and https://www.duolingo.com/skill/vi/Informal-Expressions/5 and it said I completed the skill so I didn't have to test out.

Cảm ơn.


That's weird, the skill didn't go gold for me until I tested out. I think it did say that I'd learned it after lesson 5, but it didn't go gold. I think it was just programmed to say that because it's supposed to be the last lesson you do.


It was the same for me. I finished lesson 5 and it said "completed", but when I went back to the tree it still showed only 2/5.


Actually, you're right. It said "completed" for me but I went back to the tree and it still showed 2/5 as well. So I did have to go back and test out as well before I could complete the tree.


I don’t quite understand what you did. Can you explain, step by step, how I clear that skill and finish the tree? I’ve already done 4 & 5 but that didn’t work.
