Dear Duolingo, I have noticed that most of the Translation Sentences are from Spanish to English and only little from English to Spanish. Personally, I actually prefer to translate from English to Spanish because I think it's just more difficult to know the correct words and grammar than just making an 1:1 translation to english. It would be really cool if there would be a feature in the settings or before the exercises in which the user can say how much of the exercises he would like to have from Spanish to English and how many from English to Spanish (f.e. in %). Maybe there's an other explanation for this and I just don't get it...? :) best regards
We're always testing better ways for people to learn. We've been testing wiki-style translations, which will remove translations from the lessons. Everyone will get this update this week. You can read more about what this means here: http://duolingo.com/#/comment/261407 You'll be able to change your settings to 'Quiero aprender inglés. Yo sé español' to see articles that you can translate from English ---> Spanish. That would be a way for you to practice in that direction.
