Are there two versions of the Arabic tree?

Somebody posted that their Arabic tree has been updated with new lessons. Another poster responded that their tree has not changed so they must not have the new tree. Are there two versions of the Arabic tree? Could somebody describe the difference between the two so I know which version I have?

I have read the same rumor. I have the version with 155 crowns and 31 skills. I added Arabic about two months ago and I have always had the same version.


Ok. I have the same as you. So I have the original tree. I added it a week ago. I wonder if it is true that there is a second tree. The rumor I read was that the second version was released three weeks ago. Maybe we read the same thing. But so far nobody has confirmed it or said how their tree is specifically different. If there really is a second tree, then after I finish this one I will delete it to try to get the other tree. But so far I have found no confirmation of the rumored second tree.


a new tree is usually just a bit of added content, just be patient.


Does it show total available crowns somewhere on duolingo? I can only find it on duome (the fan page)

Crowns: 40/155 (26% complete)

Skills: 13/31 (42% complete)

Lessons: 59/150 (39% complete)

    Oh, may I know where you found the rumour of the second version being released because I didn't hear anything about it.


    Sure. It here a link to the comment. I am now doubting that it is true. The person who claimed that must be confused.


    Edit: I think I saw another comment as well but I can't find the other comment despite looking for it.


    when they update a tree they usually do a gradual roll out a few users at a time. when i've been studying the same course as friends it's not uncommon for one of us to get an updated tree a few weeks before the other. i guess they do it so that if there is a glitch it causes trouble for fewer users, and they can sort it out before updating everyone else.


    Ah, ok. So I wouldn't want to delete my tree. If new lessons are added, it would be better for me to wait until it reaches me then.

    How do you find friends to do a tree with you? I keep asking my friends who study the same languages to do a tree with me but they always have some kind of excuse. But maybe they really aren't as motivated to study as I am. I passed an intermediate exam in one of my languages last year and my friend finally just passed the beginning level. I am definitely working harder than him. So maybe I should ask where you find hardworking friends?


    thank you for that , I must be more patient


    Today, I installed Duolingo to a friend and he is learning Arabic. His version was completely different. He had more than 155 crowns. Since I have seen additional Arabic lessons on his tree, I'm also trying to update it now, but I cannot. I re-installed the app with the same account, there was no difference. If I use a different account, it is likely that it will come but I'm afraid I would lose my progression. Has anyone tried using a different account and got extra crowns?


    20 May 2020: There are now! My Golden Owl didn't even last for 24 hours! Oh well, the new material is very welcome! Now there are 46 Skills and 210 Lessons/Crown. Fortunately, all the new Skills were added at the end, without any obvious changes to the previous tree (though there is a blue dot against At Home 1 and At Home 2, indicating some sort of change). The 15 new Skills all have 4 Lessons/Crown.


    I have been waiting for the new lessons but don't seem to have them. Does anybody know what should I do ?
