Impossible to change the order of lessons?
I have a question or a wish. Question, if there is already a way to do it, a wish if it is impossible (or is there a community wishlist and suggestion thread elsewhere?).
I don't want to follow the given order of the lessons. I can choose quite freely what to learn now in my German course, as I had been learning before the tree was changed and therefore my completed and opened modules stayed. And I like that, it helps especially with the topics that aren't as much fun as some others for me.
But in my newly started Italian course, it is different. I can only learn the next line of topics. That is especially annoying in situations like the one at hand: There is a bottleneck, a module on Food with 6(!) lessons. I don't want to do 6 lessons on food before going further, I'd prefer to do one at a time and combine it with others, in an order that would be more in line with my main Italian resources.
Is there a way to unlock more modules or is it impossible?
If you know some Italian you can test out of groups of skills or whole sections.
It's set and the idea is that the future modules build on the modules you've completed. Those food words will come up later on in the tree - when you get to all different kinds of verb forms you'll still be talking about food. When you deal with plurals you'll talk about food. When you get to feelings you'll talk about food. Same with pretty much any set of nouns that you practice - they come up later on down the line.
There isn't a way to change that.
Yeah, I would expect that and I suppose it is quite fine for people who use only Duolingo to learn the basics of a language. But I would like to study more modules at once, to avoid boredom. So at least not having the bottlenecks with one module in a way, that would be awesome.
It's a good idea, but as Dcarl1 writes, not possible in the current format. Shame.
