Has anybody successfully done or strengthened the "If" skill, lately? I've tried to practice it a few times in the last week or so, but haven't been able to complete it. It's very slow to load in the first place, then it starts and runs okay...... until I get to question 21. At that point, it hangs up (you can see it "thinking"), then times out and freezes completely.

The same thing happened to me with the second lesson of the "If" skill, the first time I went through the tree. I ultimately brute-forced my way through it by re-starting it until I got through it in 20 questions. It was working alright by the time I needed to strengthen it, and I've successfully gone back a bunch of times to practice it, but now it isn't working for me anymore.

Anyway, I haven't had this problem elsewhere on the Turkish tree or in any of the other language trees, so I'm not sure what to do about it. (Other than cry about it here, of course.... =) )

Is anybody else having trouble with it, or is it just me?

Yeah, sometimes tests are aborted, I've seen it happen a few times. I just redo them then.

That's the thing: I haven't been able to redo it successfully. (I've had one bomb out here and there, but this one is failing every single time, and always the same number of questions in.)

That sucks :-( I haven't made it that far into the tree yet.

Just a thought, you said it's very slow to load? That could point to a technical problem, you should probably post in the Troubleshooting forum, maybe a staffer can have a look.

Yeah, I suspect it is technical. I may move it to Troubleshooting if there are other people having the same issue. (I was worried that posting it in there initially would be dropping it into a black hole: people doing the later part of the Turkish tree are more likely to read this forum than that one, and one person complaining about one lesson isn't likely to attract Duolingo's notice among all the other "I can't get X to work" posts.... =) )

I've been having the same problem. My only way around it has been doing the timed practice, which works a little more consistently.

Ah-hah -- I hadn't thought to try the timed practice, but once it got around to loading, it did work. (This may be because I can't get through 20 questions on a timed practice, but whatever works.... =) )

Thanks for suggesting that: it sounds like there is something wrong with the skill, but at least I can practice it.

No prob. The timed is much harder for me too, so hopefully the untimed section gets sorted soon.
