Topic will not strengthen

Hi!

I'm currently doing the Greek from English course, and one of my topics has been totally frozen at 3-bars for weeks. I've practiced it almost every day, but it never increases in bars after doing so, and it's never decreased in bars between days. It also gives me exactly the same questions/sentences each time (the topic has multiple lessons).

Everything else is normal, so I'm pretty sure this topic is glitched out. Is there a way to fix it? Will redoing the lessons "reset" it or the like, and make it operate like normal? Thanks so much.

Good luck learning all your languages :)

Thanks! If redoing the lessons doesn't help, I'll report it as a bug.

Hi, when a skill set gets "stuck" like that, instead of reviewing the entire skill set, repeat each lesson one at a time and it will eventually get un-stuck.

I have the same problem with Spanish, not with all topics but with at least three of them. Going through individual lessons works, but it's annoying to have to do that.

I'm having the same issue with all Polish lessons. I have repeated the same lesson four times back to back (original strength 4/5) and my strength is still at 4/5. This happens with every lesson in the Polish tree. I can confirm that doing the individual lessons within a topic will strengthen the overall topic, but this seems to me to be a bug.

Hmm. Only happened to me for one Greek topic. The solution above (redoing each lesson) seems to have worked so far for me.
