Only getting Danish to English translations

Right now I'm on the Adverbs skill in the tree, and I'm getting absolutely no sentences to translate from English to Danish. This is a big problem for me when there are long, seemingly random words that are hard (for me, personally) to memorize. I can maybe remember them consistently when given a Danish sentence, but rarely from English. Is this a course-specific issue, or is it a problem for all languages, and is there a possible fix? Thanks!

can you try to switch your base language? Say, choose "Danish" as your spoken language, and "English" for your study language. I don;t know if you can , or if it makes a difference, but it is a suggestion! (Some people refer to this as "doing the reverse tree"). Best of luck with your Danish studies, and let me know if I can help!

English for Danish speakers doesn't exist. (language for the whole world except Scandinavians. Well done Duolingo.)

It's almost always Danish to English. I wish there was a switch somewhere to go the other way. If there is one I haven't found it.
