Two skills leveling up at the same time

I was just working on making my "Possessive Pronouns" skill gold on the German tree, when I noticed something peculiar happening. The skill right next to it on the tree, "Nominative Pronouns" was leveling up at the same time! My XP didn't double with every lesson, but my crowns did-a fact I only noticed because before I started the skill I had exactly 100 crowns in German.

I'm assuming this is a glitch, though it reminded me of the old days where working on one skill would keep other ones gold.

That's a well-known bug since the start of the "Crowns" method.

Please, send a bug report via

Maybe, this issue will be solved if Duolingo's staff have received one million bug reports ;-)

I had a similar glitch, but it was when I finished a skill, Duolingo immediately registered that I had finished the first lesson of the next level. 5/28/2018

I also have this bug with the same pair of skills. Still not fixed.

This happened to me on the same skills. Now it is happening again with Adverbs 2 and Adverbs 3. Just sent a bug report.

I also have the very same bug. Is there any way to redo the lessons I ought to have done with the Nominative Pronouns skill... ?

It is happening to me as well. Hope someone can fix it, it§s really annoying.
