My skills aren't strengthening no matter how hard I try

I do my Duolingo on a laptop and I have strengthened irregular plurals 3 times and it had a 3/5 strength when I started and now it has 1/5. I barely peeked. What did I do wrong?

I have the exact same problem, that's why I decided to NOT TO DO STRENGHTENING SKILLS, and just continue with my tree.

Same. I progress through my tree then when I'm done go back an strengthen. Unless I'm feeling particularly lazy one day and just strengthen haha.

Sometimes when i encounter that problem it's because I've made too many mistakes and it won't refresh until I get them all. Make sure you take your time also

I'd recommend the skill strength viewer. At the moment, it's still working for me but I've heard that will change. I do strengthening and/or refresh the lessons based on the percentage shown in the skill strength viewer rather than the number of bars/gilding. If something is 4 bars but 50-something percent, I'm more likely to work on that rather than a skill that is 3 bars but over 99%. I'll also work on skills that have a lower percentage even after getting to 5 bars/gold.

I completed to the end but as I had not kept all them at full strength I am still only 51%. Now I just do strengthen skills. I prefer this somehow.
