Boring lessons to redo

Hello language learners, I learn Spanish with Duolingo. I haven't used it from scratch, so I did the test. Then, the system changed to the crown system. This has led to a problem. I am able to speak Spanish more than less (around B1 level), and I study it at school. Because of this, some lessons are very boring, e.g. the first lessons. I have to type many times very very easy sentence like "I am a boy". I am unsatisfied and so I get bored, it just takes the fun away. I would be pleased if you could help me to solve this problem. Thanks a lot!

You only have to get a skill to crown level one in order to advance. Don't waste your time doing lessons you already know.

To be honest, if you're at B1 there is not much that you can get out of Duolingo, and you're probably better off utilizing other resources.

By the way, this is the Spanish forum, for getting help with Spanish grammar, vocabulary, resources, etc. Could you please edit your original post and use the drop-down list at top left to change the topic from "Spanish" to "Troubleshooting"? That way it won't clutter up the Spanish forum, and the answers you get might help others who look in Troubleshooting for information on how Duolingo works.

I'm also probably about B1, but don't agree that Duolingo no longer has anything to offer me. As you can see, I've spent more time doing the reverse tree. If you decide to do the regular Spanish tree, the solution is simple. Don't do the very easy lessons. If you're bored, then either finish the lesson and move on to something else or quit out of the lesson. I spend most of time at the end of the tree and only go back to the earlier lessons if I keep making mistakes with something basic when speaking (such as weather) or during lessons (determiners).


What I read in the forum is that the Duolingo course can get you to A1/A2 level in Spanish.
You're already on B1 level.
So, It's normal that it's boring for you to do these lessons.

I did a search for "CEFR" , take a look at this : https://www.duolingo.com/comment/2331991


I feel your pain languagelennart. Have you tackled any of the LABs yet? If so, do you find them useful, or also too repetitive or boring?
