tests we take should be on our knowledge so far!!!
Okay... but you know the tests are not for seeing your knowledge, just to advance quickly is you've already learnt a bit of your target language.
this can not be done when the vocabulary and grammar have nothing to do with what Ι have learned so far. I'm at the stage where I learn basic words and phrases. In the test I met complete proposal, unknown words and tenses. I don't think that "der Hund" or "das Hemd" or "mein Kind" or anything else will help me advance quickly the past tense for example
