Problems with Swedish from English - some of the features are not working properly.

Yesterday the audio was lost several times on Type What You Hear for some of the Level Up questions- so I had no choice but to skip the questions because there was no sound at all! Skipping the questions meant that I lost answers because how can I type what I hear when there is no sound and so I had no chance to Level Up. Today I have completed Prepositions Level 4 lessons 1 to 10 and on lesson 11 and 12 I kept typing in the correct answers but the screen said it was wrong even though my answer was exactly the same as the Duolingo answer! For example a correct answer to the translation from Swedish to English was Äpplet är under björnen and this is exactly how I typed my answer but it kept saying wrong and it gave the correct answer as Äpplet är under björnen. After continually typing in the correct answers over and over again exactly as the correct answers on Duolingo it finally accepted them and I finished the lessons 11 and 12 but the 20 points has not been awarded! Very frustrating that the Duolingo has problems this weekend and I can't progress in my course :(

Sometimes it is just to "overcrowded" I suppose. It is frustrating, but if this happens it is best to stop and come back some time later.

It is frustrating because it happens half way through a lesson so progress and points are lost :( I just gave up and came back next day.

Thank you! Here's a lingot to you, enjoy your weekend. I'm at level 25 but I'm very slow in learning languages so still studying hard. The level just means I have to practice a lot, and have been doing so for over a year now :)

I am slow to learn languages too. Duolingo is good because I can work at my own pace.

Same thing happened with me on the English > Spanish course. I'm guessing it's a server issue.

Tuesday evening the test would not load up for me to level up to Level 5 and I had to go back an hour later to do the test. This morning the audio has disappeared from the lessons. How can we learn a language if we can't listen to it being spoken by a Swedish person? :(
