DuoLingo - Skill Strengthening Too Basic

Greetings! Once you complete a course (French in my case), is there any way to strengthen skills without DuoLingo asking incredibly basic questions? It keeps going back to the most basic questions, which anyone who completed the course would no longer need. I uninstalled DuoLingo for this reason years ago, but just tried it again hoping I could practice without wasting my time with basic questions, but I can’t seem to avoid it. Thank you.

There soon will be: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/25615588

You could also pick the skills you want to strengthen individually from the tree, instead of using the general strengthen skills button. I usually strengthen from the bottom up, so hardest skills first and since you also use the easier words in those harder skills, the basic skills will often turn gold as well.


If your tree is gold already, you will get more of a mix of skills, especially if you keep practicing over a period of time.

If your tree is not gold, I recommend practicing from the bottom up, as tiramisues suggests.


I saw something new called stories. There seem to be a few French ones if you want to do reading comprehension stuff.


If you're looking for a challenge, you might like to try the reverse tree. There is more vocabulary to be learned there. Bonne chance!
