new lessons won't load

April 11, 2015



Hi! Can you give more information so we can help you?

Stuff like:

  • What kind of computer you are using, what browser, and possibly what versions.

  • What happens when you go to start a lesson--basically, what do you mean by "won't load"?

  • When this started happening, and what (if anything) has changed since then, like you've updated your browser, or moved to a different house, or installed a new program on your computer.

  • What you've done to try to fix things so far.

  • Anything else relating to Duo, your internet connection, your computer, or whatever that might be useful.


I have been using iPad 2 for Duolingo for more than a year. Two weeks ago I started being unable to load the practice sessions. The Activity and Discussion portions work, but practice puts me into a reload, reload, reload, and it never connects. I have cleared my web history and talked with Tech support at Apple who say: Contact Duolingo. I told them Duolingo literally has no Tech support; it's an academic-based non-profit. On my desktop, everything is working. But this will cause me to leave the Duo community. Thanks


Have you finished all the earlier lessons/skills?


I'm liking the help here, thanks! First of all, no, all previous lessons hadn't been completed. I'm using a Mac OSX Yosemite 10.10.2. When I say it won't load, I mean that when I started to use Duolingo, I took a test. After the test, there were probably 20 open options for me to practice. I've done all of those and am down to my last one. I'd like to see more options for practice so I could be working on more than one skill at a time. Maybe that isn't possible?
