My tree is golden again! It is possible! :D

OMG, I started with Italian last year, just before school started and went on with it come un treno, but then school work and working for money ate up all my time and energy … But I did one session almost every day and sometimes only a few questions in the timed practice. When the track manager was introduced I was on and out of the easiest track but most of the time on. My poor tree withered and I thought it would take many weeks to get it back. But no, one intensive weekend was enough! Yay! I would have liked to know that during the last weeks, so I hope my little story can cheer some of you up who are having a stressful time! Woohoo!

Bravo!
I'm working on the same and for the same reasons. :D I have 5 non golden Skills left which I intend to gild today or tomorrow. And it took me a little more than a week as well.

Since I began the program, my routine has been new lesson, strengthen skills, new lesson, strengthen skills, etc. I am nearing the end of my tree and a lesson has only decayed once since the beginning. This seems to be the way to keep it golden.

Huh. One lesson, then strengthen? I´ve been doing one skill, then strengthen. Tree definitely decays that way...

Well, this has definitely worked for me. I'm not sure of our difference. Perhaps frequency also plays a part? I usually do at least 2 new lessons and 2 strengthen skills each day.

I let mine go, too, but I have found that starting at the bottom and working my way up is working well with the occasional strengthening session. I am glad to hear there is hope!
