What are these Crown Levels in Duolingo? I do not understand them and I wish I could go back.

Is there somewhere on the system that explains Crown Levels? I have had them for just a few seconds and I already find them extremely annoying!

Hi, this is the French forum, for getting help with French grammar, vocabulary, resources, etc. Could you please edit your original post and use the drop-down list at top left to change the topic from "French" to "Troubleshooting"? That way it won't clutter up the French forum, and the answers you get might help others who look in Troubleshooting for answers to the same thing. Thanks!

Upcoming Feature: Skill Levels!
Where are the instructions for new skill levels/crowns?

Hi Lrtward, I didn't know there was a "Troubleshooting" option on the menu and Duolingo wouldn't let me post without putting in a basket, so I chose the language that it affects. I don't seem to be able to change it now. I'll keep your suggestion in mind for the future.

Hiya. There is no "troubleshooting" option on my dropdown menu, just the various languages, alas.

Like you and many others, I find that duolingo has an opaque working.

The owl does not inform students properly. It's a big gap with it.

Some moderators gently try, sometimes, to justify this cruel lack of communication. But, a language learning site that shows so little pedagogy towards its students, it annoys.

Why the devil nobody at the designers has thought to give upstream a clear and precise charter of the new duolingo. Are we cattle?

There's a good guide here:

I really like them - keeping the tree yellow and occasionally levelling up didn't give much sense of progress, just repetition. The crowns solve that problem (till I have all the crowns, anyway).

I am just finding it far, far too basic. Even though I have been practicing every day for over two years, Duolingo has only put me in the level 2 or 3 basket for most subjects. The vocabulary and grammar are at the beginners level and I am not progressing. As such, I am finding it boring.

If you do want to go back here's how, if you're on Android:
