Suggestion: implement choice on exersize type

Is it possible to give the user a choice in excersize type (i.e. lang1 - lang2, lang2 - lang1, audio, multiple choice, speech)?

For instance, I am trying to learn italian from english, but would like to see more questions going from english to italian, since I am weaker in this direction than in the other direction.

It seems like it should be easy to give the user some choice as to the excersize type he or she will get. for me it would be perfect!

In any case, duolingo is already amazing.

I was thinking the same thing earlier today. When I choose to practice, I feel I get a lot more prompts to translate Itlian to English, than English to Italian, and I feel weaker in the latter. Some sort of filter option perhaps? I.e. English to Italian, Italian to English, Mix.

Good idea.

relatedly, it might also be good to have the vocabulary list in both directions. Now, for me it only shows Italian to English, but it would really help my learning if I could see it English to Italian.

Once you finish (or get some ways into) EngItalian tree, do the ItalianEng tree. I've started doing this with Spanish and it is awesome. But, I don't yet know enough to get very far in my mirror course.
