Te+inf not strengthening

Three days ago I was doing my daily strengthening of skills, but the te+inf skill was being very stubborn. It did not become gold until the eighth or ninth time strengthening it. I was doing timed practice and getting at least 15 right every time, as well as once or twice making sure I got every single answer right and not looking at any hints.

The yesterday, I woke up and lo! and behold... it wasn't gold. I strengthened it twice yesterday and just finished my second time strengthening it today and it hasn't become gold again.

Now I have pretty much all the sentences in the skill memorized from doing it so much, and I'm sure I've gotten almost 200 XP just from try to strengthen that skill in the last couple days. The whole thing is a bit humorous.

Anyone know why this is happening, and if there's anything to do about it besides strengthen it over and over again until it's gold?

This has happened to me ever since I finished that skill in Dutch...I don't know why it's happening, thought. I usually just review the first or second lesson of the skill to make it gold again without doing the entire strengthening process. It works about 85% of the time.

Yeah, this has been happening to me for a while now as well. It will show up as needing to be strengthened, but if I just do the "Strengthen skills" button, it will skip over it. If I select it and strengthen it specifically, sometimes it becomes gold, but sometimes not. I've strengthened it twice in the past two days and it's still not gold. Like an itch you can't scratch...

Just editing to say that re-doing the first lesson finally cleared it. But, it'll be back in a couple of days... i guess it's a known bug.
