Why am I getting only 3 XPs a lesson??

Can anyone help me? When I do a session I only get 3 or 4 XPs, and I used to get 10 XPs every time. It takes me almost an hour to get to my 50 XP goal. :( Tempted to quit.

It's a new feature that Duolingo released that gives XP based on new words, not just golding skills. I'm pretty sure that doing a new lesson still gives 10XP. It has nothing to do with the amount of questions wrong, and you can still get 10XP per golding, just that it only happens when you haven't done a skill for awhile and it's around 1/4


You could also try setting your goal to a smaller amount, such as 10xp.


You must get quite a few questions wrong. They changed the xp system so that you can't speed through it and get (almost) free xp. My advice: take it slow and consistently. If you're only getting 3 xp per lesson you either haven't logged on in awhile or are rushing through your tree.
