Practice Weakest Words

For the sake of consistencies within the incentive structure of the lessons, the weakest word algorithm could work from oldest to newest words practiced...d'accord?

It might. I can't tell how it works. But I use "practice weakest words" a lot, and I'd like some additional options. I learn nouns, adjectives, and adverbs quickly, but it takes me forever to learn prepositions and verbs, especially new verb tenses. It would be great if I could select what parts of speech I want to work on. Even better, if I could choose from a list of words, and in the case of verbs, which tenses.


When I choose to practice my weakest words, it is adding in words that I haven't learned yet, but are from a skill that has been unlocked. This is especially frustrating with new verb tenses. I only want to practice the tenses I've learned, even though I've unlocked new verb tenses.
