Strengthening your skills after a long pause

Hello! I didn't use Duolingo for some time and naturally my "skills" dropped. I can't retake the checkpoint tests and the "strengthen your skills" thing is asking me to practice everything, starting with the basics like "a woman, a man". I don't want to waste time doing this, since I'm pretty fluent in the language. Is there any way to quickly prove you know your ABCs, like with the checkpoints? Or is ignoring this and moving on the only option? Thanks :)

You can practice the skills from the most advanced to the less. This way, when you come across with these basics they will also increase.

I've done the same thing, I've just had to strengthen them all. I don't think there is a way to quickly make them all strengthened. But if there is, I would love to know :D

Agreed, although knowing my luck if there is a way, no one will say it until AFTER I already strengthened everything the hard way. XD

You can reset or delete the course and start again. That way you get to test out of sections again.

I'd suggest never deleting a tree, because Duo doesn't know in that case what you remember and what you don't. Sure, you can make the skills gold again quickly, but they'll decay the next day. If you review after not having looked at the tree in a long time and you still know everything, they'll take a lot longer to decay after that.

Yeah, keeping your tree gold is such a pain sometimes. Ignoring it or just grinding works the best for me.
