English to Spanish translations

My favourite (and most challenging) part of Duolingo is when they give you an English phrase to translate into Spanish.

I find they do the opposite more often (read/hear a Spanish phrase and type out the English translation). The former forces me to build a grammitcally correct sentence -- like I would be doing in a conversation -- as oppossed to just understanding what others are saying.

Do I get more of these challenges as I go though the course?

Yes, there are more challenges as you go through the course. You can always volunteer and try more translations in the translation section

I'm about halfway through the course, and I still find the same thing -- more questions requiring me to recognize Spanish than to produce it. I like that for new words, but I agree with you... I don't feel confident that I know a word or phrase until I can translate it from English to Spanish. I wonder if their word mastery algorithms take that into account.
