Why does not strengthen work

Hi,

I wonder, if everyone else has noticed that sometime (on daily basis actually) when you strenghen skills, it does not actually strengthen it all. It does not matter if you get all correct in row or you make mistakes but it happens. It is very frustating.

Some skills contain so many words that is sometimes necessary to strengthen one several times before it will register an improvement. Whether you get all the questions correct doesn't matter; what matters is the proportion of new words covered in the skill that Duolingo thinks you know well.

Thanks for the reply. Still it bothers me. Hope there would be a way to know how far one is strengthening the skill ...

I think the cell phone version is better in that regard. It shows a gradient, rather than the 1-5 scale used on the web page.
