What would be great

As utterly amazing as this app already is, there is one thing that would catapult it into pure magnificence: For all the lessons that you've already completed to be accessible without an internet connection.

That would be cool but how would you save your progress and do the discussions?

The app would be able to save progress for each lesson offline. Until a week or two ago it was, in fact, like that. Since then, however, your offline progress for each lesson seems to be erased as soon as you connect to the internet. (Also, lessons in offline mode have now become very difficult due to definitions of words no longer being accessible: "error downloading information"). So I suggest they fix that and bring it back to how it was before but also make all the lessons (that you've ever done or are just about to do) accessible. That really shouldn't be difficult. The only difference is that the app would take up a very slight extra amount of memory on ones device.

As for the discussions, obviously you need internet for that, but adding the feature I'm suggesting wouldn't at all stop you from being able to discuss during the times you are on the internet.

very true. Sounds like a bug. Either your online progress shouldn't affect your offline progress or your offline progress should be added to your online progress when you connect to the internet. Hopefully youll get a response from someone who is able to do something about this. If you dont, you msay want to move this discussion to the 'troubleshooting' discussion area or try sending a link to this discussion and a short explanation of it using the support tab on the left side of the screen.
