New Spanish lessons will not highlight new vocabulary.

Hello, For the last two weeks, I have been going through my lessons without any new words being highlighted in yellow. When I first started my Spanish tree, the new vocabulary was introduced with a little tutorial with pictures and words being highlighted. Now whenever I start a new lesson, it is formatted as if I am strengthening a lesson and sometimes I can't even hover over the words to find out it's meaning. At first, I didn't think much of it and was fine guessing my way through a sentence or two. I thought it was a random glitch and would have corrected itself, but that has not happened.

It has been really frustrating to have to start a lesson over after trying to guess the meaning of the words and failing. This is a common problem since I use Duolingo, mostly on my iPhone and I start losing hearts. No matter where I log in, (iPhone, iPad, or Android tablet) the new lessons will not go through the tutorial.

and I start losing hearts.

Start using the mobile website version. No hearts and lessons do show new words.


This is great! I have noticed that I can continue through a lesson even if I get 5+ wrong, so I'll just switch platforms.
