Only PT-EN translations

WEB: Hello, when i do "Tests" for a higher (3) crown level, I only get translations from Portuguese to English on Portuguese course. Somebody should fix that, as it renders the course rather useless.

The "crown design" is good in theory, but actually seems to fail for me for my first four skills in my EN->PT tree either:

  • a) because of the translation direction
  • b) failing to suppress all the challenges (picture, fill the word into the blank, choose options 1-4) in favor of 100% typing on L4+L5 (L3->L4 "crown sessions" (lessons) would be good practice too

At least make this kind of stuff user configurable.

Q: Have you tried to level grammar and or skills at the bottom of your tree to higher L4/L5 skills?

Has anything improved for you?

I would not suggest to bring all skills to L5.

AFAIK there is a huge bug in the code which prevents the (skill/global) PRACTICE button to properly work once skills are on the highest L5 crown level.

Same was true for a user with an Italian tree which at L5 and 100% strength (double fully golden).

The practice button failed to give you randomly mixed sentences across all/several skills.

Maybe staff fix some crown bugs in their backend with the next big rollout...hopefully.
