Italian: new word highlighting missing

Usually when you learn a new word in a lesson, the new word is highlighted. New words are no longer highlighted. I tried in both Chrome and Firefox.

I had this problem once before and it went away within a few hours. This time though, it's been almost a full day. I really don't want to start a new lesson without the highlighting since it's so helpful. It's also kind of annoying that this problem came back.

Is anyone else seeing this issue?

Update: Also seeing this in my other two language courses, Spanish and French. I really hope this is not an AB test. If so, I feel like I should keep starting lessons and not finish them so Duolingo sees that new word highlighting is important.

I'm also getting this problem in German. Hopefully the bug (if it is one) will be fixed soon…


I dislike no word highlights, but it is not the end of the world. I have seen it in Spanish as well.
