Why won't the program let me go any further?

I have been working on the Spanish program for several months now. I've gotten to a certain point but all the future circle are gray and won't let me go any further. I've completed "Colors" and am at Level 7. The "checkpoint passed" has a checkmark, but is also gray and yet I've completed the 4 circles after that point. I'm ready to move onto "conjunct" but it's gray and won't let me move forward. I've contacted support several weeks ago as to why, but other than an initial response to say they got my request, no one is replying me. Any ideas as to why I can't seem to go any further? I didn't initially complete the "Bonus Skills" but have since done the first one. I just want to keep learning the basics, but can't seem to go any further, so I just keep practicing what I've already learned. Can anyone shed any light on this?

It appears you have yet to complete the Present 1 lessons. You need to complete all skills on a row to move on to the next one.

Exactly. Here's a post I did with pictures to explain exactly this.

You might not have enough stuff filled in. Either the levels of everything are too low (strengthen them!) or you don't have everything finished up to that point.

You don't need to do nor buy the bonus skills. Make the whole line before the 'conjunct' golden and see if it helps.

Thank you all for replying. I see now that one of the circles is coloured, but not yellow. I looked at the colour as finished, but didn't notice it was a different colour than the others. I haven't finished that one, but will now and I will then be able to continue onward. Thanks for clarifying about the Bonus Skills and that they are not needed to continue. Thanks again!!
