  5. Bought the 25 lingot test and…


Bought the 25 lingot test and accidently left page.

I bought the Dutch skill level test. I had been working on it for several minutes when I wanted to use backspace to remove a letter, but I actually got transferred to the last page I had visited in my browser and I could not get the text back.

The 25 lingots were hard to get, so I would like to know if there is any way I could finish the test or get my lingots back.

Good luck on your test!

Also, I used this chrome extension to disable my backspace key in the browser (because I used to accidentally lose my progress all the time!)


Thank you very much!


I love how the Duolingo community was nice enough to give you your Lingots back. Hope you use them wisely


I agree, you people are the best and I will use them wisely.


No problem! I always liked using the test to track my progress. I used to take it every month, and while my first score was nearly 0, it was really nice to see my progress though higher scores as I learned.


I hope they are equally kind to me. I "purchased" the test and it hung on one question and wouldn't let me progress so I had to quit it. Has this happened to anyone else?
