Only Basics 1, Basics 2 and Phases

On both French and Spanish, I can only go thru Basics 1, Basics 2 and Phrases on my Macbook air or iPad. I was given access to the next level (Food) for a short time, did the first exercise, and then it reloaded with that greyed out. Help!

Are Basics 1, Basics 2, and Phrases golden (colored yellow) for each language? If you're not given access to the other lessons then it may be a bug.

So if it's a bug, what do you suggest? Delete it and start over? I did in fact have more levels (Food) and it reloaded and turned gray after i finished one level of Food. By the way, in French, my Basics 1 is Golden, Basics 2 is Red and Phrases is Green (not yellow) on my iPAD. In Spanish, the colors are the same but the order is different.

Are you sure you finished Basics 2 and Phrases? Then all I can say is that you may have to start over (don't worry, you can test out of the skills if you really know them).

So is the way it works that those are gray until you finish the earlier levels? I had not finished the earlier levels, but for some reason Food was accessible and for my brief Spanish trip, I figured food was more important. I do not know the basics, so testing out is not a good plan.

Yes. Exactly. If you finish Basics 2 and Phrases for both, you can access it. As for accessing the Food skill, that was probably a bug or glitch.
