Can we please have a Grammar Section next to the Vocabulary Section?

Although it is important to not only memorize grammar, you need some grammar throughout Duolingo.

Without a grammar lesson or two alongside its exercises, Duolingo lacks the advanced proficiency aspect for many of its languages.

Personally, my French skill level has skyrocketed since I've started using Duolingo, but I need more grammar. I have to surf the web to find the French grammar rules to learn them, and then turn back to Duolingo to practice them. While it would help a lot to have the grammar section next to every lesson. I had no trouble reactivating my Italian with Duolingo, but learning an entirely new language is a different story.

I agree that grammar is necessary at some point. But I think Duolingo is just not for that. We can have a grammar section, sure. But the information that would be in it is available in many other places. When ever I need to learn something grammatical, I google it or go to one of the reliable sources that I already know about (from previous searches... or from Duolingo members who share their favourite sources). Duolingo, in my opinion, is all about the platform and gamification of language learning.
