Customize a Practice Lesson

I've been having a hard time with the differences between past imperfect and future tense (in French). I do a past imperfect lesson, then a future lesson, then past imperfect, then future. It doesn't do much good though, because I know which lesson I am on and I automatically translate all sentences to the same (and correct) tense. I would like to be able to combine both skills so I have to figure out if it is past or future, instead of just knowing by what lesson I am on. Just an idea.

I agree with you. Another thing I would like to see is the option to just translate into the target language.

I would love this to be an option.

If I'm understanding your request, you can use the browser version and turn off the word bank so that you're using the keyboard only. Makes for a much better learning experience, in my opinion.

I'd also like to be able to customise the type of question you get. For example if you wanted to become fluent you could only receive microphone and audio exercises.

Hear! Hear! It would be extraordinarily helpful to combine 2 or more of the skills.

Great suggestion.

This is a fantastic idea, and doesn't sound like it should be too difficult to implement, i think? i am wholeheartedly in favour.

I agree completely. Practice needs to be a mix of skills.
