How to use this site

Hola amigos!

I've just signed up to this site and was wondering if anyone could explain a few things to me about how to use the site?

I want to test myself, but only after completing each topic at the end. It seems however, this option to take the test disappears after I have. Does anyone know how to take a test on only the things you've learned so far?

Also, what are these streaks?

Thank you!

P.S. cannot believe my luck with this site, it is amazing. Hoping to work my way through all languages, and love the fact that I've come across so many others who appear to have the same love of languages! :)

Hello! I recommend checking out the Wiki. There is a getting started guide, along with several other how-to guides and an extensive FAQ.

Short of clearing all of your progress by resetting your tree, there are 3 options once the test-out option has disappeared. 1. You can take a Timed Practice (I'll get you some lingots for that. You'll need to snag the equip from the Lingot Store from the Home tab. Once you equip it, it stays forever) 2. You can do an Untimed Practice. 3. You can take the Progress Quiz (Also in Lingot Store. This one you can only use 1 x each for 30 Lingots.)

I hope that helps! :)

Don't forget about the "test out of X skills" at the checkpoints. Though since the poster is interested in only testing what they've learned so far, they probably want the skill-specific strengthening or the general practice options already mentioned.

(And I think the progress tests are 25 lingots, not 30. Unless there's some lingot inflation where you're located...)

streaks are how long you are keeping your daily XP goal.
