Words strength is not reflecting correctly.

Hello helpful reader!

Today I visited 'Words' tab, and I found recently practised words as overdue. The strength bars were greyed out. For instance, 'Alcool' poped in a recent lesson, I did it correctly, but Duolingo says that it's been 5 months that I practised the word. There are many more other in the queue. Could you please tell me what's the science behind?

Thank you for your time.

The words tab is kind of buggy. Sometimes there's a delay, or it doesn't update properly. Two days ago my words tab disappeared completely for like 6 hours!

Sidenote: I'm going to follow you because you're learning French and Norwegian as well, and because I love that painting you're using as an avatar "wanderer above the sea fog" :)

This is definitely a bug, I'd suggest reporting it to troubleshooting.

That is a very old bug.
The newer courses, like Dutch for English speakers, don't even have a "Words tab".

It has been this way for a couple years. I don't think it's a bug, but a deliberate decision to prevent users from getting maximum scores on all words, which has its own problems.
