I seem to be losing interest in Duo as the questions or statements that we are required to write contain vocabulary that has never been used before as it was explicitly illustrated in the earlier lessons. How can one answer a question when one doesn't have a clue what the words in the question are? In the earlier lessons, new words were highlighted and used repeatedly until the learner had become familiar with them.
Simple business model: start off nice and easy, draw in customers, get them used to the app, then start increasing the difficulty (unfairly, as you no doubt know) in order to try to convince you to start finally paying for the app. The idea is that you'll probably get so used to the app that there's a likelihood of you actually doing so; it appeals to our need for reward so we always want our next dopamine hit. Yes! I've passed the next level, acquired gems, unlocked this/that/the other, but in reality you've almost learnt nothing of value. If you really want to learn Italian, invest in a proper language course and/or book, and get talking to natives. I suggest doing what I do, only use DL as I means to rehash sentences to make speaking, reading and writing Italian more and more automatic. For learning new material? Never.

Sorry to bother, please forgive me, but there are not many other people helping me in answering... :(
