Allison, hi. An advanced learner said in another discussion that "would like" can be substituted for the verb "want" as a polite way to ask for something.
However, if you make a typo and type "They want to RAT at a restautant," Duo does NOT recognize the word as "eat" - Ha-ha-ha-ha!
Bob, I've had the same problem, it seems like if there is no context to go by they would try to make the differences more distinct, a as in casa and o as in sombrero. I've found, however, that if it has a uh sound, (which is pretty much in the middle of the two sounds), then it's probably masculine.
May be not 300 XPs for a minute, but to earn 200 XPs in 3~5 minutes is possible: If you eager for XPs, you may take a test to skip the top level of the topic, which usually contains 20 lessons. If you've passed the test, you get 200 points for all of them at once. However, you have to be quick! :)
Hi TB, I often wondered how some DL'rs seemed to be turbocharged until I found the 'skip' route. I agree with and support your logic regarding repetitiveness but I must confess ( mia culpa ) that personally I have chosen to force myself to 'skip' whenever possible in order to concentrate more as I am mindful that 'familiarity' ( French and Italian tree completed ) could cause lack of said concentration. Does that make sense? ... maybe I'm a masochist but at 67 I'm pushing myself to keep the wetware from needing a defrag. I do however intend to go back and run every practice in full .. as a punishment ;-) bring on the sackcloth and ashes.
Lhcyberdiva, also, querer is one of the "e-to-ie-stem-changing words" that go back to just the "e" for the 1st-person plural, so if they use "we," you translate to queremos. I think you can read that in the "tips" before you start the lesson set; they may explain it better than I. :-)

I think "in" should only be required when the people are already inside the building. When they are thinking about going to a restaurant, they aren't there yet so at to describe the location of where they want to eat fits also. If you were talking about eating in the restaurant after ordering a drink there, then yes, of course "in" is best.
