Just wanted to let you know that there seems to be a bug in the new Dutch course, Compound Nouns lesson.

First, Duo does not give you credit for strengthening the skill when you actually do--I've been stuck on "Strength 4 out of 5" after strengthening my skills at least a half-dozen times. And second, I keep getting the same sentences to translate every time. It seems Duo is stuck!

Oh, and I've tried strengthening this skill with and without being timed.

Workaround
Instead of strengthen: Repeat one or more of the lessons, starting at the last one.

Are you using the app or internet? I just strengthened the skill 5/5 with the internet version and had no troubles with it.

I have the same problem with the same sentences... has been like this for some days, in different lessons of the first third of the tree. It is only in dutch and not in the other languages I'm currently doing. I use the app (Android). Just had to write "Het snelle paard eet" eight times. That is no fun and even though I make progress in the tree, I miss out on many things. I hope there will be a fix for this soon! Bedankt!

delagirl - Honestly, the Dutch course is full of bugs. I have around 26 skills already available in purple, but I haven't even got that far yet. This happened to me yesterday while I was doing the next or newest skill possible for my current level, which happened to be the "Body" skill. And for some weird reason, all the skills beyond it became available, and instead of DuoLingo giving me the point for doing one round of that Body skill tree, it ended up giving me the point towards the "Health 1" skill, which is way further down. In the process, it liberated all those not yet reachable skills in between them.

Yeah, that definitely sounds like a bug. Would you mind submitting a report here, so that it ends up with the engineers?

It's a bug since the start of the "Crowns" method (also in other courses)
