I do not know how to step to the next lesson

I have learned the first lesson in Spanish. I always get the sam lesson (El hombre, yo soy una mujer, and so on), and a simply can not step over. How can I step to the next phase?

I can not move forward in spanish. The interface is flawed. They need a NEXT button or perhaps a picture of a monkey pushing the correct button to move forward.

Can you tell us where you are having a problem?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/robert_b

In which country? Is that you mean? If so, the answer is Hungary

Have you finished the first lesson?

Same for me. First it happened with German. When I complete a lesson and get the results page I can see a flash and after that the score is the same as before the lesson. I tried to do a shortcut too, it didn't unlock anything, and the number attempts didn't decreased.

When did you last try doing a lesson?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Rupppi

Just before my comment.

Could you try doing a lesson in a browser that isn't Internet Explorer, if you have one installed?

Sry, I tried to edit my first comment before, but it didn't work. I already tried it in Opera besides IE. In several machines, different network.

Hi robert_b, can you try using a browser that isn't Internet Explorer and let us know if you are able to complete the first lesson? We're currently trying to figure out if this but is only affecting IE users. Thanks!

Hi guys, Thank you for the tips, I have tried it with opera, and everything is ok now.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/robert_b

As a matter of fact, I did not do the task with the microphone earlier (with IE) because I did not have microphone. With opera I used a microphone, and did that type of task as well. I do not know what is the source of the change, the Opera, or the microphone.

I can't move ahead, either. I use safari.

Can you elaborate?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Mkirschman

I finish a group of questions and then try to click "continue", and nothing happens. When I go back to my own page, I appear to be still on the same level - it doesn't register any movement. I'm stuck.

yeah i'm kinda wondering the same-how do you know what youve done and what comes next.i know its a silly question-but what do the ticks and stars mean and is there anyway way of just linear progression thanks

Have you tried doing a lesson in Basics 2? It looks like you need to do this.

Hello, I have a similar problem. I'm I've completed Portuguese lesson 1, but it will not allow me to go on. I've completed the lesson wit no errors at least 5 times. I've tried on both Firefox and Chrome. I thought it might be a problem with Portuguese because it is in beta so I tried lessons in German and French, I completed the first lesson with no errors but still was not able to continue on.

I think the site is great and it's terrible to complain about a free thing, but to add insult to injury I keep getting e-mails telling me to complete the first lesson as a challenge - something I've tried multiple times.
