Suggestion: more written practice

Hello Duolingo team! I have been using Duolingo for educators for some time now, And I really miss having more English written practice with my students. We often get to translate and write things in our native language, but it would be wonderful if we had a bigger percentage of English exercises. I noticed that even on the first stages the students are able to make complete sentences by themselves.

Thanks a lot!

We'll look into why this is happening. Meanwhile, one thing that some people to is the reverse tree ("learn" your native language from English). It might be interesting to try that too, and provides extra practice with the English interface. Switching courses does not remove the progress they have achieved so far (they would just have to switch back), and might be worth trying while we figure out what is happening. Thanks for your feedback! :]
