Anybody else got stuck lessons?

I went through and maintain the Swedish tree for fun, but I seem to have a problem with the lesson on passive participles. Not the lesson in itself, but it never turns gold - it appears to be permanently stuck on strength 4/5, no matter how many times I redo it.

Is this a known error, and/or should/can I report it somewhere?

Edit: The solution, apparently, is do redo lesson one. :)

I've never seen an error like this before. Seems rather odd.

You can report it with the support tab on the left side of the screen (Or scroll down to the bottom of the tree, click help, and click contact us to report it)


Thank you. I'll give it a day to see if it's happened to anybody else, but then I'll report it.


I remember seeing somebody else posting here about something similar, but I don't remember what skill they were on. I agree with Artilex on where to report it – the Report a problem button only leads to us course creators, and we can't do anything about it.


I had a similar issue on Android version. I managed help myself by going to the website version where i was able to reach 5/5.


Thank you. Tried it on mobile as well, to no avail. We'll see what the support team says. :)


i had a lot of stuck lessons and a few wouldn't work at all on the mobile app (kept saying it couldn't connect to duolingo.

i managed to fix a bunch of stuck units by playing them from the website but there is one (conjunctions) that just won't work. no matter how many times i strengthen it it never goes golden, and every time i get the same exercises and sentences, just in a different order. i am definitely able to speak about someone cooking while others are sleeping but there are only so many times it can actually be a topic of conversation in one's life :D


Thanks for the input. I seldomly use the mobile app, so this was on desktop, but I did try to do it a couple times on both now, and that didn't help either. Going to report it now. :)


Found this thread after posting one of myself :) Anyway, I experience the same issue, both on PC and Android versions.


New post on this suggests a workaround: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/7569211


Can't believe I didn't try that. Thank you, that worked brilliantly!


worked for me too!
