Conjugate Past Tense Verb Endings

I'm kind of struggling with the Past Tense Verb endings in my tree. It is really a battle to get this into my brain, but with some minor changes it could be much easier. If Duolingo structures the ten lessons differently and would be changed into: - first a lesson learning regular AR verb endings. - Next lesson move on to the regular ER and IR.
- If you get the endings of both in your head, move on to the irregular words,

Now it's more of a mess of regulars and irregulars next to each other and nobody recognizes the structure without looking at other website to learn the endings and use them.

Perhaps another tip on these lessons, if you see a yellow word and it is verb, you can hover over it and on the box which presents the answer, on the button there is often a button with Conjugate. It REALLY helps for me to look at the structure of the verb (what is Present tense structure and PAST tense structure).

Where do you find the link for this? You mean at the bottom of the tree? Because all I see below the icon for the last skill is the standard row of links "About Mobile Terms Gear Help Guidelines Jobs Blog Twitter Facebook."

I know that the conjugate tables are at the bottom, but the structure should be change to make it easier...
