Spanish intro bug

As the title says, the intro doesnt list the words that you're supposed to use.

F.ex i'm supposed to use "usted" but usted is not listed as an option and some of the words seem really out of place.

Anyone else noticed this?

I assume that you're talking about is the "word bank" questions where you build the response from a set of word tiles.

The personal pronoun isn't generally needed in Spanish since the conjugated verb and the context of the sentence tell you who is doing the action. They're really only used for clarity or for emphasis. Without knowing any more specifics since you didn't give more details in your example, I would guess that the default solution to that problem probably didn't require the personal pronoun, so it didn't get included in the set of tiles.
