[Suggestion] Strengthen more than one skill at a time?

After a certain point I'm sure people notice how it gets hard to keep the tree golden while still advancing in your lessons. So what about this:

An option to strengthen all non-gold skills in one long stretch of questions. The phrases could have words from different lessons all used together, just like a book in any language would have. One sentence could include occupations, conjunctions and animals, for example.

What does everyone think? Would it be feasible to cover the less-used words from several lessons in one longer one?

I think strengthening multiple skills in the same practice is already implemented, at least for some users. Last time I practiced Spanish it told me at the end that I had strengthened three different skills. It was still just a twenty-question practice, but you can always just do several of them in a row if you want more than that.

I think that's pretty much what "Strengthen Skills" is supposed to do. But it doesn't just look at non-gold skills, because your weakest words may be hiding in skills that are gold. I have a full tree, and I use "Strengthen Skills" almost exclusively, and I rarely get a skill go off gold, except the Christmas one.

That's exactly what I was thinking of, a 'Strengthen Skills' just for non-gold areas. I agree with the weakest words potentially being in gold skills, though. Good point.

That's why, I love the vocabulary page. With the function "practice weakest words" you can practice words, you haven't practiced in a while and at the same time you repeat several grammatical aspects

Perhaps, but your gold skills need practice to remain gold. Easier to remember than to relearn.

It would be extremely helpful if anyone can (let's say) strengthen a whole language after having completed it. For example, I'm a native castellano (Spanish) speaker, and almost a native English, and I have a LOUSY score on my "native" courses just because I don't want to go into the trouble of reaching the higher levels on them. If only I can run, let's say, two or three (or whatever, but not 100) full exams in a row and boost up my levels up to the max, that would be VERY helpful. Actually I think I only had the "positioning" or "leveling" exam on both, and after reaching a score of 10, I never touched those courses again. I suspect any software "feature", "request" or "bug" can take very long to analyze, correct, implement or even to test, for that matter: I'm a software developer, people at duolingo! I could be interested in help you out, if that's the case!
