No credit for finishing lesson

As it says in the title, I do not get credit for finishing a lesson. I am working through the English for Japanese speakers tree and got to the skill "場所". I ran through the first lesson and was not given credit for finishing it. No exp gained, the skill still reads 0/9.

On finishing the lesson, the yellow ring fills to 1/9, but the skill still says 0/9 and starting it again brings up the first lesson.

I tried the one next to it and could finish those and get the exp for them and ran up. I also tried several from earlier lessons and they all work as intended. It's just the one skill bubble that won't function properly.

My main concern is that I won't be able to continue on with the tree if I can't finish it (though I've got plenty of content to keep working on the rest of the tree up to this point until this is resolved).

Has anyone else experienced this? Is there a way to solve it? I've tried switching languages and different browsers but nothing works. (It just occurred to me that I've yet to try on the phone, I will do that after posting this)

Edit: I have not been able to try on my phone, as it keeps crashing out of Duolingo when I try (it's an older phone and has been touchy with duo ever since I started using it, I'm assuming it's completely unrelated to the bug I made this post for)

Edit2: I tested out of the skill by recommendation below and got credit for reaching level 1 on the skill (and got experience for it). Still get no progress/experience for finishing the first lesson trying to get to level 2. So not completely resolved, but I can at least move on to further lessons.

Try a different browser, device or internet connection and see what happens. You can also try using the mobile website on your phone.

I've tried different browsers but got nowhere. Couldn't do the app on the phone but I'll try the browser on the phone... Just finished testing that. When I finish the level on the browser on the phone, the page crashes. No experience or progress rewarded for the level.

Perhaps testing out in that particular skill might solve your problem.

I was afraid to try since I thought I wouldn't know most of the words and wouldn't be able to do this... Turns out they used most of the same words from the Japanese for English tree so I managed to pass it. I got full credit for finishing that bubble and it went to lvl 1.

I tried the lesson again to see if that fixed it completely, but it still doesn't give me the individual experience/progress for finishing the one lesson.

Thank you though! This will at least let me keep moving on while this issue is resolved.
