I'm strengthening areas, but they are not showing as strengthened.
Macbook Pro, newest version, using Firefox.
Hello Matthew, I think the reason for this is you may be strengthening them but not strengthening them till they are gold making it hard to tell if they have been refreshed. Although you may have earned maybe 2-3 maybe even 4 skill points, you haven't got enough points to have compensated for all the lessons in each lesson. In other words try again this time try to at least get 5 points and if you just can't they press practice again every time you finish until altogether it will = at least 5.

"Hi! what browser are you using? I just mentioned this following to another community member who was experiencing some microphone woes: "I'd suggest using the latest version of Chrome because Duolingo works best there. If you're on firefox you're going to want to check that flash is installed. You'll need to make sure that you authorize Duolingo to have access to your microphone in the Flash privacy settings. Go here: http://j.mp/10jCImV. Once you've done this, make sure you also have the microphone enabled in your account settings at http://duolingo.com/#/settings/account. Finally, close your browser and open it again." Let me know if this helps!,"
