Being forced to refresh the same sessions every day

Hello, I don't know if I'm the only one with the same problem but in the Dutch course, I've had to refresh the Places and Jobs lessons every day for about a week, I know the answers by heart now!

Is there a bug in the system or something? it's incredible that I have to refresh over and over every single day, it is halting my progress because I like having my tree as golden as possible.

Thanks

I have had the same problem with Spanish. It even appears differently between different devices. I'm the same way - I have the answers memorized, especially after doing some of the exercises 3 times!

I am having the same problem in French. No matter how many times I do it, it never turns gold. But I am just having this problem on one lesson.

So am I . Poss. 2 just will not go gold even though I get it correct everytime

yep, poss 2 stays at full minus one for me as well.. 'c'est le sien' every day for the past week :)

Yes I am tired of knowing that the pig is theirs! I guess we just ignore it and move on

Moi aussi. It is not the only one. There are some that will not go gold no matter what. I at first thought this was a bug in the latest iOS app but it is true on Windows desktop browser also.

Something is definitely broken, Duolingo team. I did four refreshes of Poss 2 in a row and it did not lift from 3 out of 4 bars. Given there are only two lessons in this group this is not possible by your algorithm for spaced repetition.

It is getting to the point where I hesitate to refresh anything non-gold because I no longer can trust that refreshing means anything. Please stop telling us it's in our heads, this is trivially reproducible.

I have the same problem with Possesion 2 in French. The pig is definitely theirs! Would be nice for it to be sorted. Otherwise I love the course!

I've given up now. I have e-mailed Duolingo but no reply. Such a shame.

Same problem in Possessives 2 in French. Also brought it up in the French for English forum, no sign of it being fixed yet.

I tried Possessives 2 in French yesterday and it went gold. Maybe they listened. So far I am not having problems with any others.

I honestly doubt there is a bug in the system. Have you seen the best way to keep a tree gold?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ngpaez

I saw that before and used it but so far nothing about the two specific skills I'm talking about, I am not even using hints now because I know ALL the words due to repetition after repetition (there are 3 sets of strenghtening exercises AT MOST in each skill, so if you have to do them over and over again, you learn them by heart)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Val868166

Same here. I'm fed up with simple stuff and need to move on, but HOW???


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/kmmeares

moi aussi. just refreshed infinitive 2 and it tells me i must do it again. please advise. thanks


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Val868166

I've given up. Duolingo do not reply to the problem. Au revoir!!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sarah-Harley

Just tried my French Possesion 2 but still the same problem. Really annoying!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/hettar28

For me it finally went gold when I redid the first (or second?) lesson of Possess. 2 instead of doing the 'strengthen' option


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sarah-Harley

Many thanks hetter28 - I redid lessons 1 and 2 (rather than 'Strengthen') and hey presto . . . gold! :-)
