Unable to advance...

Lately, after I finish a lesson in French, it doesn't seem to register. I still get xp points for it, but when I go to do the next lesson it remains locked. The weird thing is, it's only happening in French... I'm advancing fine in Irish.

Any help would be much appreciated..

Some background information: I am logged in through facebook. I use both my computer and my android phone for duolingo. I am unable to advance on both. Around the same time this started happening, my duolingo app would also suddenly not recognize me as a user. My progress would disappear, and It would ask me what language I wanted to learn. Once I select French from English, all of my progress and account information returns.

I'm wondering if it has something to do with adding Irish to my language learning. It's not available on android, so maybe it's causing a glitch in my account? Not sure...

I think I figured it out. I use duolingo on my laptop, home computer, and phone. My laptop was still under Irish. Once I made sure all my devices opened in French I was able to advance, and my missing progress appeared. I think it has something to do with the fact that not all languages are available on all platforms, and when you open duolingo it automatically goes to your last practiced language. I think I confused the system... However, it seems some other people are having the same problem, even though they're only learning one language. Hopefully this information helps at least a few people dealing with the same problem. Thanks for all your comments!

Seems like a universal problem on French Duolingo.

It could be becuase of adding your facebook. Or it could just be a glich in the program.
