How or why does the number of words I know go down? I was at 759 and went on vacation for a week (without internet access) and came back it lowered my word total to 705, but I can't find what 50 words it thinks I lost? Any ideas?

This could possibly be because they changed the Spanish tree while you were on vacation. Maybe they removed some words.. Not sure though as I don't actually do Spanish.

They changed the Spanish tree, but I lost almost 200 words. First I lost around 100, and then another 100. I went from 757 to 568. No one will answer as to why. I have been on a three week vacation without internet access also. We should have been able to keep the ones we already had, as I put a lot of work into learning them. I did write down all my words, so I should be able to figure out the 200 words that I lost. I am peeved that you only lost 50 words, and I lost 200. I wonder why?

I wonder if it's because I was offline for a shorter period of time. I printed out all the words so I could practice, but going through the list seems a bit daunting, now that I've practiced vocabulary, it won't be in the same order.

thanks for answering. Maybe that happened, but the Spanish tree should be the same for all users. oh well, at least I have the words written down.
