French Levels reset...

Hi; I've been doing the French program daily for almost a year now, and last week after completing the daily practice, almost HALF of my categories have been re-set to the beginning, with "health" requirements and all that stuff. Can anyone tell me why this is? Review is fine, and helpful, but I'm not really interested in going back to the beginning. "what's this? An Apple." no thanks. But thanks for the replies....

I can't wait to transition to the new system. I'm so bored with the old tree and going over the same material all the time. I've done it a few times and I nearly considered giving up until the Duolingo stories came along. My next goal is to reach level 25 and I think the new material will turbo charge my motivation.


I'm guessing you might have just transitioned to Crowns: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/26739837


Thanks for replying. It is though due to the development and release of a new French tree.

And the post describing all the great things that have been revised is well worth a read.


very interesting; looks like that's indeed what it is. Thanks for taking the time to reply.... Best;


I feel you! I lost my owl and many of the basic items were reset. At least, I can't complain anymore about not having more stuff to do here.


Thanks. That is good information. Now I can give my sister a heads up.


You may need to internalize your reasons for being on Duo. The motivators, whether they're lingots, fluency %, gold skills, gold owls, crowns, streaks or whatever are there to help those who need incentives to keep going.


I believe everyone will be switched to the Crown system in the future, so the current gold balls will be replaced anyway, with Crown levels to reflect your efforts.


I would direct everyone who is involved in the A/B test of the new tree to also read this post: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/26750687
