Some Skills Won't Strengthen No Matter What
I did 4 practice sessions in the Demonstratives 3 skill. The first two times it strengthened, but the next two it didn't. I'm sure it's a bug because the same exercises were repeated over and over again. "Celui-ci est mon chien." "Celui-ci est mon fils." "Ma femme aime bien celles-ci." Etc
Sorry. It did not work :( Let me try it on the website. I've been using the app.
UPDATE: Sorry, it still didn't work. I'll try again tomorrow. I've been using too much Duolingo today. Let me try timed practice... Then I'll quit and stop procrastinating...
UPDATE 2: It worked with another skill, but not Demonstratives.
I have exactly the same problem today, on exactly the same exercise! I did it four times and it refused to strengthen. I tried timed practice and that didn't help either. I'll try it on my Kindle when I get home.
ETA: I encountered two more skills that won't update no matter how many times I review them. I know I need the practice anyway but there's no way I'm going to sit here all day working on lessons and not getting any re-gilding for the time and effort... I'll be back after they've had a chance to fix it.
ETA again: Tried again on my laptop, totally different machine and connection... still doesn't work. I think this is how my tree started getting un-gilded in the first place and I just let it go.
I'm now having limited success by re-doing the last lesson in the grouping... sometimes the skill will turn back to gold, sometimes not. I'm running about 50/50.
On the bright side, I've never been able to point-and-click on the accent buttons before when the accented letter was the first one in the sentence, but now that's suddenly working fine.
Hi, I had the same problem today with a couple of the french topics, including the same Demons. 3. To resolve it I logged out and restarted the app. When I returned I completed the last lesson and it (so far) fixed the problem for all of them I had the problem with....thanks to those below for the suggestion...
