Am i missing something with new vocabulary words?

I am still at the early stages of using this program (Danish), but it seems that new words get used in the exercises without being introduced first. Some I know from previous language study, but some i have to guess at. Am I missing some kind of introductory text?

You can hover your mouse over the words (if using computer) or, I hear, click the words, to get translations visible. I don't know if this is true of other platforms.

I finally found that (by accident). I just find it odd to be quizzed on vocab that hasn't been presented first.

I just think that it might be presented in the quizzes for the first time.

guessing is a good approach. That's been the case in the languages I have done too. Happy Danish learning, hats off to you!!

It's a known issue with learning. I'm not sure how to work around it.
