Review Basics

So I have a complaint about the review system. I think it is a waste of time to review the basic lessons after one has gone well past the basic level. I suppose I could just ignore the reminders, but I have programmed myself to do all the reviews before pushing on to new material. It's an irritating delay to have to review material that is clearly learned.

In a similar vein, I think a better review would be one which mixed up various categories. For example, it would be more useful to recognize the future or past tenses when mixed together with the present.

I select the topic that I think needs reviewing and disregard the automatic suggestions: I go to the topic, and click "Strengthen" there.

In this way, my reviewing always remains interesting and tailored to my own progress.

With your second suggestion, I agree. However, I've already seen notes like "You've strengthened Skill XYZ and 3 other skills". So, to some extent, your suggestion already seems to have been implemented.


I did a suggestion similar to yours - but people say you should just individually do it :( Yes, my learning way is the same as yours - go on only after everything is reviewed. But after the web rewrite, it is tougher so I am doing a new lesson and reviewing another every day.
