Can I go back to the old system?

The new crown system doesn't let me see the new words that are being taught in each lesson, and I'm trying to write down everything I've learned so far so I can practice it when I'm away from my phone or computer. I really don't want to have to redo every lesson and write down words that way, so is there any way I can return to the old system we had before this new one? And I know I sound super whiny with this being my top priority, but the old system just worked so much better for me all around...

Do we have to find a spreadsheet for every other course if we want to review the words I've learned then? :/

I agree. I also miss the old system. It is huge diffrence - new system oblige me to do every topic anew when i want to repeat it. In old system I saw which part of course i have to practice. I am devastated ....

In the new system, until being "crown-level" 5, you see it too: anything that doesn't have a 5 on its crown (or no crown at all), is to be worked on.

I agree - I'm almost at the stage of giving up. I don't like the new system at all.

You're not alone... Since these changes I barely practise since I don't like this system.

Staff is (slowly) definitively switching everybody to this new system.
So i don't think they plan to give a way to not be in it as they decided it'll be the new system for everyone.

If you don't know, I'm convinced that it means you don't have it: if you would, you'd notice the big crowns everywhere on your language trees. ;)

I agree with this. I went into a lesson this morning and when I finished everything was new! I was working towards having everything gold and had worked every day for the past 2 weeks to get to the point I was at. Now It seems for nothing. :/ Now I guess i'll have to start over and work towards getting everything to level 5. lol

I really didn't like the new system at all at first (see my earlier comment) but after quite a few weeks' absence I have come back to it and persevered and I am now finding it better. The number of repetitions is a bit daunting but it really does get it into your head.
