    You having the issue where the symbols change after you click on them too? I sent in a bug report, and told them I tried all of their troubleshooting techniques, but it still is all wonky.

      Playing guess where the word is hidden got tiresome - I've switched to direct input a bit earlier than I intended - was planning to do it when I had all lessons complete to fifth level. (still have almost all of level six and a few level sevens to do.)

        Yeah, I've been doing a lot less because where I'm at the sentence construction is more complicated, and I'm still not very good with direct input.

        Send in a bug report if you haven't already, the more of us that report the issue, the more likely they are to fix it.

          I did that the day of the update, and a couple since. Closing down the discussion section wasn't a good move on their part either.

            I did not know they did that, that's almost as bad as Blizzard and their damage control regarding Overwatch.

            • Gotta love some of the sentences in the exercises: this one was good for a chuckle

              • And they seem to have finally got the idea that reverting to the pre-update format might be worth doing.

                  And now they broke it again.

                    I kind of noticed that. It appears to be that they're fixing it in stages. Some lessons are OK; others aren't, with the lessons a mix of corrected and flawed.


                    9 days short of a year. 9x3 units to complete the course (to level 5); I'm already two months behind target to complete, and it's going to be line ball whether I will finish within the year.

                    • Made with a day and a bit to spare. Muddling a bit with modern Greek while I make up my mind which language to do next. I was considering Hebrew or Korean, but not sure that I want to add yet another alphabet to the mix. Portuguese maybe. Meanwhile, working on consolidation in level 5 Japanese.
