How do I pass a checkpoint?
A small correction. It actually changes from orange to grey, not the other way round. Till the point some skills are left before the checkpoint, the option Test out of X skills will be available. After completing all the skills, this will become greyed out as now nothing more is left to test out. Instead it will read Checkpoint passed.
I'm so sorry! I thought that you were referring to the skills. Yes, then you were right. There are only 3 checkpoints, but there are many skills. The skills are the things that turn orange after completion, and the checkpoints are the opposite. I was thinking wrong. Again, I'm sorry.
I have just started learning Spanish and am very enthusiastic at present. How can I move from Basics2 to Food, which is currently greyed out? I just keep on repeating the Strengthen Skills section, but cannot get access to Food. Is there some magic number of times that I have to repeat the Strengthen Skills section.?
I also wonder about the checkpoints. The checkpoints are all gray, with the statement "checkpoint passed", both for the one where I have completed all the skills for that section, and also for upcoming sections where I have not yet done anything. In other words, there does not seem to be any recognition of passing any checkpoint here (maybe it does not matter?)
I am at Level 5 in the Intro, Phrases, Travel, Restaurant, Family, and Shopping sections at the top of Duolingo Spanish. Level 5 is the highest, why is the checkpoint still grey? Do I have to do all the practices? The new format has so many practices (like 36 or 48)They are very repetitive and so boring after you have learned a skill quite well.
