Lost progress

I finished Basics 1 and one lesson in Basics 2 in Dutch on Monday and today (Tuesday) apparently I only did one lesson of Basics 1 and gained 0 XP! Please fix this! (If you can because I don't know what actually is going on)

Did you switch from doing lessons on your computer to your phone? I did Dutch from English on my computer and then another day I went on my android phone and Dutch from English is not yet available there, so I was thinking which language I would do on my phone when I pressed the wrong button and I was doing Dutch after all, but I was starting over. It turned out to be English from Dutch, but strangely I still had an English interface and after I had been working a long while it told me in English that I had reached level 4 in English. You know I was still happy, because the beginning lessons were fun to do in the reverse and the practice was great. Well we know it is in beta and while they are adding it to the phones who knows what temporary glitches we will see.

Well, what I did was on Sunday I first started Dutch... I did 2 lessons and Strengthen Skills I got a total of 61 XP. The next day around 9pm (I'm on a trip to India so times might be different) I did like 3 or 4 lessons and practice skills and today it says I got no XP for Monday...

But like you said it is in beta... Oh yeah about the switching from computer to phone on Sunday I did Dutch and then on my iPad it said Dutch is unsupported and then it glitched and I actually did do Dutch (Dutch from English unlike you) I did one of the 2 lessons on the iPad but that stayed. I don't know if it was giving me a glitched version of English from Dutch but all my progress gave me XP on Dutch to English.

I am having the same problem but worse! I am a native English speaker studying Italian. I signed in one day and it had erased all of my progress in Italian and the language was set to Dutch or something, I don't even know!

All good!! I'd somehow added a second language from the app, but from a different origin language (Spanish to German instead of English to German, as my Italian course is from English to Italian...).

If someone else having the same issue comes across this comment : Go to https://www.duolingo.com/settings/direction (settings -> learning language on your profile), and select your original learning pairing ("I want to learn Italian (English)" instead of "Quiero aprender italiano (hablo espaƱol)" in my case).

I guess learning a new language from different base ones is not equivalent (yet) for Duolingo :)
