Stuck with Food/Animals

I'm currently stuck with Food/Animals - it seems that there are too few lessons and available translations to reach the required score. It's a little frustrating, so I wonder how long it'll take until new translations would become available?

Try doing "Attention aux régimes dangereux !" that should give you about (+20) points for Food. It's at the top of my stream, as I've just revisited it so you can find a link to it.

Huh? What do you know - within minutes after writing this I did another lesson in animals. I still don't have enough points for Food or Animals, but 'Adjectives 1' has been magically unlocked. Did an admin step in? ;-)

If you get stuck with not enough points to complete the lesson, look at the Translations menu and pick something. If you watch carefully where the scores are going, some of them add to your lessons, not just skill points. I've "mastered" quite a few lessons just by doing some random translations.

Yeah I've done that for a while and I quite enjoyed it, but currently I seem to be getting only wikipedia texts that don't contribute towards specific topics..

Ha, interesting! I wasn't aware you could do that.. I only get 4 rather boring wikipedia articles ;-) Thanks!
