Problem with repeating words?

Anyone here has a problem in 'Strengthen skills' where really simple exercises get repeated often? I just went through a practice and had to translate or write from hearing word 'elephant' four times and 'duck' three times. I did not make a mistake in these, so this is not a reason. And this is not the first time I have seen this. Anyone else?

I'd also really rather practice those words in sentences and not on their own.

My personal record is having to translate s'il vous plaît seventeen times in a row for a French lesson. :)

ok, but this one you actually use, and how often to you use the word 'elaphant' in an every day conversations? :D seventeen times... that's a lot.

> Anyone else?

Yes. It's been happening for a while, has been reported more than once, but hasn't been fixed yet.

I'll make a note of reporting it as well next time it happens to me.

That's all we can do, although so far it has not helped that others have reported the problem, that we can tell.

The more something is repeated the easier it is to learn, but I understand what your saying. I get 'en tomat' is a tomato in Swedish Duolingo, geez!
