French past simple conjugations

Why didn't Duolingo add such lessons to the French lesson tree ? ( Ex: donner :
tu donnas il/elle donna nous donnâmes vous donnâtes ils/elles donnèrent

Passé simple is not used for conversation and only in literature. It's good to learn it at some point, especially if you plan on reading the classics, but it's not necessary for a beginning course.

Passe simple would be a very nice addition to the French tree. Maybe in a future tree update...
