Practice stuck on the same batch of sentences for thousands of XP [solved]

Hello,

I was wondering if anyone else had the same problem: I finished the tree weeks ago and now I just do Timed Practice... but it looks like for the last 1500 XP or (!!) Duolingo makes me work on the same batch of sentences over and over.

So much so that I only need to listen to the first word and I can type the whole sentence by heart. It is really boring and I simply don't know how I'll ever manage to do more XP (and so reach higher levels) if it continues like that.

I've been working for days on "A duck in the boat, the trainer is at the gym, this angle is 90 degrees, the knight was injured, who knows the Pythagorean theorem...")

And when - oh miracle - I get something else, I'm back to "ee, eeta" !!!

Anyone else?

UPDATE - well it looks like after having repeated the same twenty sentences or so for well over a thousand times (basically what took me from level 15 to 16) I have finally earned the right to practice on something else !

So I guess that the advice would be : be patient and DO NOT HIT YOUR COMPUTER.

Apparently this isn't just a Greek thing; someone else was saying only recently that for many of the courses, when you do general strengthening, you often see the same sentences again and again for no apparent reason. I'd have to agree. I do 110xp on untimed practice most days, and there are some sentences that I consistently get correct, yet see way more often than I'd expect for a standard spaced repetition algorithm - sometimes, literally every day. That said, each day, I do see quite a few sentences that I haven't seen for ages, so that's always good.
