Practice Won't Restore Some Skills to 100%

Recently I've discovered that practice won't restore some skills to 100% in Spanish. I've just encountered the second one today.

This is annoying, as I don't want to go beyond level 3 yet.

Is there a solution, or am I going to forced to continue beyond level 3 with more and more skills?

Well, it seems Travel 2 isn't going to update ever. :( I've practiced twice and also finished 8 of 12 exercises and I'm still at 75%.

I give up. After completing the 9th lesson, I tested out of the skill, I got a lingot and it is STILL at 75%.

I see that this issue is long-standing so I guess I'm just stuck with two skills that will never progress beyond 75%.

Following advice from another thread, I tried to re-do lessons in the Leisure skill by changing the URL. It eventually promoted me to level four anyway but didn't change the percentage.

Obviously, this has been an issue for years so apparently the developers can't or won't address it.

    I'm so sorry, that does sound annoying.

    Now there are three and the Strength score won't round up to 100%. This makes me angry.

    Perhaps I will make a new account and test out of the first-three levels and then delete this account's Spanish. I'm hesitant to just delete this account's course first.

    I'm not sure there's any logic behind that. :)

    I have similar problems with the French course.

    I have one account that was originally on Tree 8 then got upgraded to Tree 12. This tree has no problems.

    My other account started on Tree 2, then was upgraded to Tree 3 and then straight to Tree 12 (was never on Tree 8). This tree has MANY skills that will not go to 100%. I suspect something went wrong with the tree upgrade process. I supect some words are just never getting presented to me at all, meaning even if I do all the skills to level 5 I won't actually have finished the course and some words and sentences will ALWAYS be hidden from me. This is really frustrating...

    I suspect course changes are the root of my problem as well. I think I'll reboot the Spanish. It's not like I've really learned it well anyway.
