I have noticed the following problems with the revised tree:

1) For some of the typing exercises, there is no option for "my answer should be accepted" in the "report a problem" section. For example, the new tree does not accept "el coche" for "the car" and won't let the user suggest it as an alternative answer.

2) When going from Level 0 (purple) to Level 1 (blue) in the skills, it often skips a step. For example, when it is supposed to take four lessons to reach Level 1, it indicates Level 1 after only three lessons have been completed.

3) In the "Work" skill, some of the tiles in the rearranging words exercises are missing apostrophes. You have things like "the boss name" instead of "the boss' name."

I hope this feedback helps to improve the course.

Firstly, move this to the troubleshooting section, but I've noticed problem number 1 myself.

Secondly, here's another problem: When I say something right on the microphone, and it accepts it, it makes me repeat it again anyway. Sometimes I'll have to repeat it correctly three times before I can move past. And when I get something wrong, it doesn't give me that second chance.

Lately the microphone problems won't even let me repeat something. It just marks it as wrong, end story. Which is really frustrating because most of the time, I've said it correctly (at least, in Spanish, I'm familiar enough to know when I've said something well or not.)

I try to avoid this by pausing for a second before speaking. I usually find there's some lag-time.

"2) When going from Level 0 (purple) to Level 1 (blue) in the skills, it often skips a step. For example, when it is supposed to take four lessons to reach Level 1, it indicates Level 1 after only three lessons have been completed. "

I think this is because many of these "new" skills are a mix of old and new skills. So it may say 4 lessons are left, but that's actually 3 new lessons followed by a lesson you had already done in the old tree. So once you do the 3 in front of it, it recognizes that you've already done the last one and gives you the crown. I think people who are doing the tree for the first time have to do all 4 lessons.

Does anybody have a problem accessing skill #5 - Family? I can't access it neither on the app nor on the web. When I click on it, I'm sent back to the homepage on the web, whereas on the app I receive "An error occurred. Try again later" message. It's been like that ever since the update of the tree. Any suggestions?
