Duolingo is the most popular way to learn languages in the world. Best of all, it's 100% free!

What exactly does the "Practice" button do?

It seems obvious that it recaps all words learned in the bracket it's next to, but it has also given me words I haven't learned yet?

Don't get me wrong it's not terrible as it's only extra content, but it wasn't made totally clear what it does exactly. I hope the duolingo crew has a tutorial planned for the launch.

it implements spaced repetition on all the words you have learned so far.

It recaps all of the lessons; I don't know if it does a combination (many lessons in one practice) or just recaps one lesson. It is very useful.. I will sometimes take about 20 practices in between lessons just to get everything re-memorized before learning more.
