Can’t access “Past 2” on mobile version of website.

I’m learning Hindi on my iphone by using a regular browser, rather than the app (it’s not in the app yet, at least on iphone). But I can’t access the last topic, simply because of the way the website is formatted for mobile. The problem is that the bottom navigation bar covers the “Start” button for the last topic “Past 2”. This is true in both Chrome and Firefox on ios.

When in Chrome browser app, click on the three dots in the upper right corner. Select "Desktop site". Then, start the lesson. You can switch anytime to mobile view the same way, because the web view requires some dragging and scrolling the site around. Worked for me, so I hope it works for you, too! :)
(Just keep in mind that you need to update to the latest version of the Chrome app, before it was not possible...)

Hm, still isn't working. When I click on the three dots, the closest thing I see is "Request desktop site". When I click that, it appears to refresh the page, but with no discernible changes. And I still can't access the "Start" button for the last topic. This is true in both the latest version of Chrome and the latest version of Firefox.

I wonder if for some reason it's not really taking me to the desktop version, as it doesn't seem to require dragging and scrolling - it seems identical to the mobile version.

This is how it looked for me:

Mobile view: (https://i.imgur.com/H9JIgHa.jpg)
Desktop view: (https://i.imgur.com/kgCRHNy.jpg)
Both in Chrome app. As you can see, in the "desktop view" I could easily see and click on the lesson.

I remember that the "request desktop view" option started to work properly only after updating Chrome. The latest update version may be limited by your phone model and system... in that case, I guess you'll have to resort to finishing the course on PC...
My version of Chrome app: 68.0.3440.91

I had the same problem, press the key and attempt to test out of the last subject. Also, I believe it is on the app now.

I ended up just testing out. So it’s not an issue any more. Thanks for the tip!

Oh and I see you’re right that it’s in the app now.
