Adverbs 3 bug (technical)

Using Windows 7, I think I am experiencing a bug on the Adverbs 3 skill. This was showing I was on level 2 and needed to go through 18 lessons to reach level 3. I ploughed through it, meeting many new adverbs on every lesson. Each lesson was taking me 20 minutes to complete. This is completely unlike any other of the skills levels. It was as if all the leftover adverbs had been piled into this one skill set. Yesterday I reached and completed the tenth lesson. Still another eight to go to reach level three, then. Today I noticed Adverbs 2 was a different colour from the adjacent ones, and, not paying attention, tested out to level 5. When I came to continue with Adverbs 3, I found I had no more to do, it was already on level 5. I'm not on level 5 with anything else in the whole tree, so I was a bit surprised. I think there must be a bug in this corner of the tree which fails to introduce the bulk of the material in the lower level exercises, and then links progress on the two groups of exercises. Everything else on the tree has worked fine.

Hei, Nic!

Could you relocate this thread to the Troubleshooting forum for me, please? Just hit edit on your original post, and then choose Topic: Troubleshooting from the drop-down list. As exciting as the Norwegian forum may be, I don't imagine we have all that many of Duo's software developers following it. :)

Thank you for reporting.

Happy to do that. I guessed this was not one of the typical reports, which is why I labelled with (technical). Thanks for the links. All done.

Probably, the Norwegian course has the same bug as many other courses since the start of the "crown method" (spring 2018)

A few different skills have their crown progress incorrectly linked.
Only Duolingo's staff is able to fix this.
You might submit a bug report via

You probably should indicate the language in either the subject or the main message. I'm not sure if the staff will want to dig through the thread.

I had similar. Completed level 1 in Style and it opened up Business (not started) and Adverbs 3 already showing at level 4. I have adverbs 1 and 2 at level 4 so it may be that Adverbs 3 shows progress from 1 or 2. I have reported it and will have to hold off that topic so I can start it at the beginning.
