My Tree has Changed?

My Duolingo tree has changed completely...titled French skills...Crown level and it's now all completely different from what I've previously been doing? I'd like to go back to where I was before the change so that I can finish the tree...I was getting quite close to it. Can anyone let me know what's happening?

The thing I do not understand: I was recently moved onto the beta new tree. I accepted the change and even supported the change on these forums. Now, only about a week later, I get another change. Change is not (necessarily) a bad thing, but too frequent change certainly is.

Thank you for getting back to me so quickly. I now understand what's happening and should have already known about it.

I am extremely frustrated! I had completed my tree, and all skills were gold. I had to take a break for a couple of weeks, thus I have spent the past week working to regild my tree. On Wednesday, after much effort, I managed to regild the entire tree, and now it looks like I have to start all over again. I t doesn't appear that you can test out of anything, either. I really don't want to go back and redo all of these easy lessons again, just when I was gaining proficiency. Does anyone understand what has happened?

Same thing, just recently regilded the whole tree too and now this. I don't want to be going through all those lessons again, I want to pick what I can practice. I think I'm done with this site at this point.

Having had a major change last week I have been working hard to cope with the changes. Tonight I switch on only to find it has all changed again. Frustrated just doesn’t cover it and I am having to do really stupid basic stuff that I can’t even test out of. You really are messing with people’s heads.

You think that was bad...my tree has been all gold for weeks. Yesterday even the basics went red. Also two weeks ago my 377 day streak went even though I did not miss a day and had a protect streak in place. Well back to the basics!

For anybody who is wondering about the new Duolingo method, this is what happened to me. As you know from my earlier comment, the tree changed and set all my lessons back to 0 completed lessons. Yesterday, I went back and re-did some of the lessons. I completed one and got up to level 5. Today, the application set me back again to state that I was at level 2. It took up a lot of time to complete my trees only to have them turn from gold to a 0. This is entirely frustrating and not a good way to learn another language and in my case French. That's it. I'm not going to purchase it I am going to purchase from another company that I've found has a much better system and doesn't set you back to 0, 1, 2 whatever when you're working hard to learn something.

You know they did this to make you see more ads. Like you I started over again by testing out of each level only to have crowns show up. Now you can't test out of a level. The only exploitation is the ads. Like you I'm also switching.

Try this as a workaround to the problem https://www.duolingo.com/comment/26846620

After weeks of practicing and doing the lessons 3 times, my tree has set all the lessons to an "incomplete" status. How frustrating!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now I have to take up all my time to do all the lessons over again including the beginning lessons in French. I'm going to find another service and a French tutor. Duolingo has just wasted all of my time.

You don't have to do them over if you don't want to. Just keep doing new skills if that's what you prefer.

This has obviously been explained to another lady, but I would appreciate the same explanation as I too have found all my completed sections now not completed at all! I would like to know what has happened. I may well have missed something along the way!

Ads? Oh!

Why would anyone want to be associated with this peace of trash company? Again and again they reset your level. This last time was a compete reset you can’t even test out of a lesson. Hundreds of hours of work gone.

You know I as about to delete the app and try Resetta Stone or one of the others. But I'm going to wait for a week and make a list of Duolingo advertisers and send them an email expressing what a poor company Duolingo is!

Just sent this email to Direxion a Duolingo advertiser. "Just an FYI I saw you ad on Duolingo and wanted to let you know that this is a very untrustworthy company. I am moving over to Resatta Stone you might want to move your ads over there as well."

Denk niet die bedrijven daar over zullen wakker liggen. Heb je 10 lingot's gegeven. Ik vindt de verandering ook niets gezellig heb mijn plan moeten bijstellen. En vandaag dus minder dan willen doen behaald door frustraties. Lees nu er 5 niveau's zijn en merk dus ook op dat ik eigenlijk op niveau 25 (helft bereikt heb) dus nog veel zal moeten doen dus eigenlijk dacht ik basis te kunnen met wat na oefenen. Nu lijkt dat ik vooral level 2 en 3 behaal heb en vrijheid om zelf iets meer te oefenen op bepaalde woorden wegvalt van wat te oefenen. (statistieken zeggen niet alles) Ik ervaar de nieuwe methode als dwingend wat bij een blokje niet meer 1 onderverdeling kunt kiezen bvb had ik problemen met eat en eats met meer oefenen van dat blok hadden mijn hersenen dus meer tijd om de link te vinden. statistieken kunnen niet zien of ik het door heb of versta. Afwachten ❤❤❤ het afloopt op de mindere momenten. Ik geef de nieuwe methode een kans Maar vandaag viel mijn planning in de war. Donatie (plus) zat al even in hoofd op niveau 25 voor de dingen ik leerde niet voor de reclame te filteren maar dat heeft momenteel aan het twijfelen gezet. Wat niet wil zeggen ik het niet meer zal overwegen het zal afwachten zijn ❤❤❤ de nieuwe functies meevallen. Graag had ik persoonlijk de keuze tussen oude versie en nieuwe.
