Experience Bar is gone?
The recent updates have removed the experience bar feature on the Home page. Is there anyway to check your progress towards the next level now?

I don't really know any way to know it. “Daily goal settings” can be helpful, but the level, the number of points of each level and the number of points already done on each level are really very helpful too, as long as they allow us to distribute the number of times we repeat each lesson and each skill, considering that we have to obtain 30,000 points to get to the 25th level of each language. For example: knowing that, we know that we have some 400 points available for each one of the more or less 75 skills.
For me, the XP bar was a great motivator whereas I find the coach function annoying and not at all helpful. I generally aim for 40-60 points a day but i have my coach set to 1 so that i don't have to deal with it. I think we all set our own personal goals but the bar often encouraged me to exceed it it rather than just meet it.
I too want my XP bar back, regardless of whether I have the Coach or not, and I want there to be a way to choose to remove the Coach, no way should i have to be in the position of losing my xp bar just coz I idly clicked on the Coach to see what would happen and now I cannot reverse it via Duolingo. (it can be worked around, check out post above by user th23x, see this solution to combine both, the coach and the XP bar: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/4914732
you can install this extension from the chrome webstore to make the progress bar reappear https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/duolingo-xp-bar/dkknkcpbgcaldcjpchgciginadhnapeh/related
Hi, I've only been using Duolingo for a month now, but this post strikes a chord. I'd really like to see this experience bar that everybody speaks of.
I tried installing the plugin that's supposed to bring it back, but no joy.
I agree that such a device would be more motivating than the coach feature, and that it was basically brainless of Duolingo to remove it.
I hope that M_Bosch receives a favourable reply from the support service.
Just a mad idea, perhaps we could organise a petition asking for the return of the progress bar. Lets say our goal is 10,000 signatures.
