Glitched Skill

The Nominative Pronouns skill for German isn't working. It says that I've reached Level 5 in the skill even though I've never actually even completed one lesson. Every time I try practice the skill, it glitches and says something went wrong.

I've got something similar in Norwegian, it's given me two crowns in a skill I've only just unlocked.

Can you open lessons?

Yes, but I would imagine this is because mine has only glitched up to crown level 2 rather than all the way up to 5.

It is tied to the Possesive pronouns one that is next to it (and had been reported often...) - when you do anything in one of them, it updates the other one as well.

I ended up working them by doing one lesson from one of them, one from the other - you lose half the lessons this way but at least you have some lessons from both.... I keep them both at level 4 so I have a few lessons I can use to play with if I need to review these specific skills. Too late for that for you I guess :( Hopefully someone will come up with a solution about this for the cases where someone is already at level 5.

Any idea why it might be happening in Norwegian too? https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/28297970

I suspect that the course has the same issue as the German one - but as I had not worked through this tree, I don't know which are the two skills that are tied this way.
Try to do one lesson in this new "V: Past 3" skill and see which earlier skill also suddenly shows an additional lesson being done on it ? It will be one of the ones with the same number of crowns as this one.

I suspect you're right. Ithink it's linked to "V: Past 2", most of my other skills are at level 3 but that one isn't. I don't want to try it though as I'm trying to be methodical and pace my learning. This is really annoying!

Yeah, it is annoying - I just remember to keep an eye on it while practicing. Once you know that this is happening, you are extra careful when you are doing lessons on the one on the lower level as it will burn a more complicated lesson downstream... Good luck with your Norwegian. It is on my bucket list of languages I want to learn one day :)

Thanks for all your help, and good luck with your German! I would imagine there's quite a bit of crossover between the two.
