Duolingo completely bugged

I have my mic on but I ask duolingo to not use it (In Settings). Yet in a lesson it will come up a speech challenge and I select "I don't want to use a mic", but after completing a few words/sentences, it pops up again, as if it has forgotten what I told it.

As well as this, I am currently trying to do the lesson 'Determiners' where I learn 'this' 'that' 'those' etc. in Spanish. Yet a couple of stages in, it starts giving me things like 'la mujer' and basic tasks that do not relate at all to the 'Determiners' lesson, as though it thinks I'm doing 'Basics 1' or 'Basics 2'. I am doing lessons, I am not strengthening, so these things shouldn't appear.

I have disabled cookies and cleared my browser cache to no avail. Has anyone had any experience with this before? It's become too frustrating and has put me off using this site.

This is probably a technical issue. I will notify an administrator for you.

Thank you, I think this is probably the wrong area to post this stuff anyway, but I've tried googling this issue and nothing substantial appears, so I thought I'd just post about it now and see what happens. So far it seems I'm not the only one with the problem.

I notified one of the engineers at Duolingo. They might be able to solve the problem, since it seems to be a technical bug.

It's only arisen in the past couple of days for me. Today is the worst it has been for me where the lessons are glitched. I guess I'll have to buy a streak freeze or two :)
