General Practice + "Crowns"
Before "crowns" appeared (yesterday afternoon on Android version) I knew what I had to do. I would practise a skill which had lost "gold" status OR do General Practice OR, in a language where I had yet to complete the learning tree, I would do a new lesson.
Now, I don't know what to do!
Apart from doing new lessons, my only option seems to be to increase my crown levels. But I don't want to do endless exercises in "Basic 1"!
There is a still a General Practice option BUT what effect, if any, does it have on my tree?
No one is entirely happy about change but my first impression of "crowns" is a negative one.
But thank you, Duolingo, for all that I have gained from this app in the last five years! (I have 220700 XP - so I must like it!)
Exercise does not go forever, they reach to the highest (golden) level of 5, then Time Practice re-appears. This is valid for All lessons.
I think a lot of folks discussed the number of crowns in the new system, so not all lessons have the same total number of crowns. Besides, there are 2 lingots added for each crown gained.
BTW: That is a hell of an XP/Streak you've got!
