Mine is gone too. I didn't have it to begin with, but I had the chrome extension, and now it's suddenly gone. I know at least one other person also had this problem. Wafinator just posted on my stream. Hope it's temporary!

Edit: I messaged Lrtward. Hopefully we can get some mods on the case.

Edit again: My tab just came back. Does anyone else have it again?

perhaps it is just on the chromes

Nope, did it come suddenly? Or did you refresh or restart your PC?

Gone for me in all languages.

I agree it may just be a glich

I can still access it through existing links (e.g. through notifications on my activity).

Given some of the other posts around about Duo being messed up recently, I would err on the side of caution and not overreact. Probably just temporary.

I agree. Immersion has disappeared many times, temporarily. If the articles are still there via links, I wouldn't be too concerned.

It's now working for me, at least in the English → Spanish language course.


EDIT 1: 2017/01/10 21:31 GMT+0:

It's down again and the site and apps are horribly slow.

Edit 2: Probably a few hours after the last edit:
The site is working at its normal speed, but Immersion Tab is hidden.

Oh my gosh!!! (first of all, I am glad that someone else is on DL)

Really hope they get it back. :(.

edit: Went on my stream, and translated a little sentence. Maybe....?

edit2: Just uploaded immersion article. No biggie....

I had it this morning, from spanish to english, but it is gone now. the site was down for a couple of hours and when it came back up, immersion was gone.

January 9, 2017

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

Same for me.

January 9, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Jack.Elliot

Likewise with me

the site was down for a little while

and returned without the immersion

That suggests to me that they have removed it permanently this time. They have been trying to phase it out for a while, despite nobody wanting that. I never really understood why Duolingo doesn't like immersion.

Dear Potatoe Santa,
This is not the case. Immersion is now back up.
We thank all the community for the patience they have shown, while this issue was being seen to.

January 10, 2017

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

Thank you, it seems to be back now for me. I always worry that they will eventually take it away entirely because they removed it for some users but not others.

Yes, there was a trial that was/is going on. We still have no official statement as to how the trial is going, or if it has an end date, etc. However I do know that there was an issue they were looking into that was causing problems earlier today. And I have been very relieved, as I know many of you have been also, to see immersion has re-appeared.

January 10, 2017

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

mine is gone....???? not sure why

January 10, 2017

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

I sent a bug report to duolingo about this problem and added a screenshot with it. All we need now is an answer.

January 9, 2017

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

Yes. We're aware and working on it would be nice.

January 9, 2017

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

I have the same problem, but it is permanent.

January 10, 2017

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

Did you have it before?

January 10, 2017

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

It has always happened-since I started duolingo

January 13, 2017

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

Mine is gone as well.

DL Needs to post the reason

January 9, 2017

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

I had it in both Spanish and Italian this morning and now it is gone. There was some slowness in the entire program earlier today that actually kicked me off the site twice. Since the removal, it appears as though I can go back in and refresh the lessons that are no longer golden. It would be great if when they brought it back, that they were including more languages... Norwegian would be great. hint

For immersion to come back up - it may be as simple as refreshing your page.

YES, THE IMMERSION HAS DISAPPEARED.

IMMERSION IS BACK on my account!

Thank you DL and to the community for the discussions!

Going to the link does not help me. It gives me error 404. NOTHING WORKS ;(

My immersion appears to be stuck in time from about four weeks ago. Don't know what the problem is but it did not get better with whatever big event occurred yesterday.

January 10, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TomHilton1

Just disappeared again for me. It was very buggy this morning--taking forever to load pages, points not appearing, stuff like that--so I suspect they're doing some more work on it now.

January 10, 2017

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

Yes, it was glitchy this morning, and now is gone again. Hopefully it is being fixed...a lot of us are dependent on it.

Mine is gone again!?! Not sure why but we need a solution to this problem. Could be temporary.

Italian Immersion is down but this happened to me just a lil bit ago.

Immersion disappeared today and I was on the middle of translating two very interesting articles in Portuguese. Where has it gone and why?

January 11, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/NicholasMc15

Immersion has been gone for me since just before Christmas. I've finished the only tree I want to work on, and while I have no problem just keeping that in the gold immersion was the only thing keeping me coming back .. Oh well.

February 20, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TomHilton1

It's over. Duolingo has phased out Immersion. I'm having trouble finding the announcement, but that is the official word.

And yeah, that makes Duolingo a whole lot less interesting and valuable to me.

February 24, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/NicholasMc15

Oh well. I think I'm at the point I can just read books, but immersion was really helpful. I really wish there was a bit more communication about this!
