I really preferred the old layout. It made it so much more encouraging to be doing lessons because I could choose what to work on rather than having to get through a specific lesson before doing something else. It would be great if it switched back or even gave the option to switch as I'm seeing other reviews with a similar complaints. Duolingo used to be much more fun like a game, but now it just feels like a completion thing

Update to edit: more than 50% of earned XP is not accounted for. That's a huge discrepancy and I can't believe it's gone on so long without a fix. ETA: points have been inaccurate for some time now. Earn 15 points, only 5 added to total. Earn 30, only 13 points added. Tried restarting the app, lost 60 points. It's insane. Very frustrating. Previous review still stands : I'm sorry, but the new version is terrible. I liked being able to go back and practice some of the harder lessons.

Please bring back the old layout. The new one with the latest update is very confusing and it is not fun not being able to listen to the storis when you want. Also, it was easier before to keep track of your progress and the layout was motivating. Now it looks like a nonending cycle of lessons with less flexibility and options.
