I just switched to Traditional Characters and my progress now says 0. What did I do wrong?
All good! Your progress in Simplified Chinese and in Traditional Chinese are two completely separate tracks.

Can I switch back to Simplified characters if I want to?

Yes! If you want to learn the simplified form of Chinese again, all you need is to switch the character set again in your settings. Your progress in Simplified Chinese is saved (if you had any).

Can I learn both Traditional and Simplified characters?

Absolutely! If you want to learn both Traditional and Simplified Chinese, you totally can! Since they are two separate tracks, and your progress is saved in each, if you want to learn both sets, you totally can!
