Translation to dutch would be more useful
I’m doing the Dutch course already quiet long, and I would like to keep doing it in order not to forget the words. But Duolingo keeps asking me to translate from Dutch into English for nearly all the tasks, which is after a while not helping anymore. It would be nice, if Duolingo would ask the other way round, to translate from English to Dutch after a while.

Start the "reverse tree" the course "English for Dutch speakers"
Duolingo uses a very good teaching method for beginners and for people, who want to brush up their school knowledge.
In the course "Dutch for English speakers" you are learning the grammar and the pronunciation. You will mostly translate from Dutch to English and the user interface is in English.
In the "reverse tree", the course "English for Dutch speakers", you will mostly translate from English to Dutch. The user interface is in Dutch. And you can start to read (and write) in the Dutch forums (set the microphone and sound to OFF in Duolingo's settings)
In the "laddering trees" you can do "Foreign language 2" from "Foreign language 1" and reverse (if available in Duolingo).
These are my favourite courses.
Upcoming Feature: Skill Levels!
Not so much in my opinion. And especially when you have to strengthen skills from the beginning I haven’t noticed to much of a difference, here one could expect you to write the whole sentence in Dutch in level 22, or whatever, but no, you have to puzzle a simple English sentence.
There's a "club" for people doing the reverse tree, that is "English for Dutch speakers". It's good for Dutch learning English and people learning Dutch. It's called "reverse tree" and you find it when doing the course of English from Dutch, on the application. You're welcome.
