Duolingo Android App "Your hard work is paying off" pop up after 3 or 4 problems

So after doing 3 or 4 problems in the app, I get this weird pop up with the duolingo bird saying "your hard work is paying off", then I have to hit continue....is there anyway to prevent this from happening?

It adds nothing and after a couple times it is annoying

I don't think there's any way to prevent it. My personal theory is that we who see this are a control group for the test using advertising -- we still have our lessons interrupted and still have to click to continue.

I did notice you could buy a month of ad free experience, but I've never seen an ad, so interesting theory.

I haven't seen that option (yet), nor a single ad. But I know a lot of other people have ads.

I've got ads and pop-ups. Must be ABC test now. I hate the pop-ups worse than the ads. At least they are only at the end of a lesson at least for today

I occasionally see Duo pop up like this and I have ads at the end of lessons/practices. It usually happens after I get something wrong (and the message is something like "don't give up, mistakes are part of learning," or something like that), but sometimes it happens if I've given a lot of correct answers very quickly (and then the message is "your hard work is paying off"). I think it's an experiment and they're trying to see if slowing down a little bit helps learning.
