Hi, could you please edit your post and change the topic from "French" to "Troubleshooting"?

The French forum is for questions about French vocab/grammar/resources, etc. If you change the topic your post won't clutter up the French forum, you'll attract the attention of folks that could help, and the answers you get could help others with the same problem who look in "Troubleshooting" for help.

Thanks!

Okay, I know that this is a stupid question, and that the answer is probably going to be "Duh," but have you finished all the lessons before time?

Thanks for your very quick reply. I didn't realise there was a time limit, but I'm finishing all the lessons in no time at all. Have retaken the last one at least three times but the TIME button is still greyed out.

He means have you finished all the lessons in all the skill sets that precede the TIME skill set.

There is no time limit.

Sorry - so am I, and that surprises folks as well.

There is no time limit on finishing each lesson, I think what Woof.... was asking is if you finished all the lessons in every topic before you reached the topic for "Time". If not, go back and do those lessons because if you don't, the "Time" unit will not unlock.

Thanks to you all for your replies. Have been told I shouldn't be here (should be troubleshooting) so I'd better vamoose.

Actually, you were just asked to edit your post so that it would get better visibility :)

I didn't mean to chase you off!
