Certain words not strengthening in new update?

I may have discovered a flaw in the new update to Spanish. I assume that you (Duolingo) have removed some sentences that you deemed unnecessary, but I think this has caused a problem. You see, I had gotten behind on word strength, so I did about 25 "practice weakest words" sessions today, and there are a few forms of a few words that, no matter what, will not appear in any form practice whatsoever. This curses me to encounter their other, fully-strengthened forms in literally every practice, which has obviously gotten quite annoying. These specific words for me right now are 'preguntas', 'elementos', 'actriz', and 'espaƱol'. I don't know for sure that this is the fault of the new a update, but seeing as I've never had this problem before, I don't know how it could be anything else. If you see this, thanks for listening, and I hope you can find a way to fix this.
