Skill not letting me practice?

This morning on my phone I tried to practice the French bonus skill Flirting. I pressed about four or five times and the app would not let me practice it. After getting online, I tried to practice the same skill, and it would not let me practice. I can practice other skills on the French tree, just not this one. Is anyone else having this problem, or is it a bug that will sort itself out later on?

On android version it reports a error message "Error occured, try again later". I have reported it by mail to Duolingo


I’m having this problem as of July 7, 2019.


I'm having similar problems with only that skill -- I strengthened flirting a few days ago, then needed to strengthen it again almost instantly -- and it just crashes and returns to the home page every time. Only the flirting skill has this issue. (Not on a mobile Duolingo app but the web version; google chrome)


I am not having that problem.


Yep - also having this problem but only with 'flirting'. I don't get an error message but the skill just won't open when you click on 'strengthen'
