  5. Placement test misplaced me


Placement test misplaced me

I just started with Duolingo today, and took the placement test. It has put me at a level that is much too difficult. How can I get my level readjusted?

How do you know it is too difficult? Have you tried the Strengthen Skills button to practise the lessons you have already unlocked?

Alternatively, you could reset your progress in the settings menu. You can go to your settings by hovering over you name/picture at the top and selecting Settings from the drop down menu.



All that the placement has done is to unlock more skills/lessons than you are comfortable with. You can go back and redo the lessons/skills that you are feel weak in. Otherwise you can go to profile/settings and reset your tree.
