My progress on Duome does not advance

I would really like to get one golden tree. In Italian I was able to get all 332 crowns and have all lessons at the level 5. However Duome claims that I am still only at 75% in Basic1 and 50% in Basic2 (all the other lessons are at 100%).

Come on, the words in Basic1 are the ones that are used in all other lessons as well. I have practiced Basic1 more that 10 times and it is still only at 75%. Any way I can get my percentage up without having to write the same answers again and again and again?

Try to practice only those two skills ... Not the "general" practice for all the course.

That's exactly what I did. I practiced only Basic1 over 10 times. Can you imagine how boring it gets? The same simple sentences again and again: Io bevo. Lui mangia.

Still can not move it to be over 75%.

Probably, it is a glitch in Duolingo, because Duome's statistics are based on the data in your public extended user profile

Thank you C5H12! Now I know that I do not need to waste my time and can concentrate on a new course instead. Have a lingot.

You're welcome.
Thanks for the lingot and your knowledge of chemistry.

I have been having the same problem since being moved to the latest French tree two days ago. Redoing some skills does get rid of the little blue dot but doesn't strengthen to 100%.

I guess maybe Duolingo is moving to a different system of tracking when skills need to be revised and eventually duome will hopefully start representing that instead?

I was upgraded directly from Tree 3 to Tree 12 (without ever being on Tree 8) and MANY of the skills that were introduced with Tree 8 will not go to 100% even with repeated revisions. Also 'Dates & TImes' and 'Numbers' later on in the tree are stuck at 75% too.

I have another account that was upgrade from Tree 8 to Tree 12 and it seems that 'Numbers' is the only skill that won't strengthen correctly on that account (so far!).

I have several combinations of GE/SP/PT/IT trees annoyingly stuck at 99 percent apparently due to the same (missing?) lexemes in Basics and Basics2... In the meantime I’ve learned to simply sigh and try my luck again with the next one. And wait and see if the glitch/bug fixes itself sometime in the future ;-p
