Separate lessons in skills

Hi all,

About half a year ago when the "crowns update" went live, the separate lessons in each skill disappeared. At that point I had been learning Russian on Duolingo for over two years on a very consistent basis and really enjoyed doing my daily exercises. I would usually do dozens of lessons a day and sometimes my daily XP hit the high 1000's. Unfortunately, after the disappearance of the lessons I noticed I progressed less as I could not select a specific set of words I wanted to learn or improve.

I am now at a point where I notice my knowledge of Russian is actually decreasing because I'm no longer able to select specific lessons/sets and I don't enjoy using Duolingo as much as I used to. To me it's important to be able to look back at specific things I did not understand or learn good enough (like when learning from a textbook you have the option to turn back some pages) and that option is now sadly missing on Duolingo.

When I press the "practice" button a lot of times I get words and sentences I already know and/or understand, but the ones I don't know don't pop-up often enough during the exercise to fully learn and remember them and that is where I really miss the lessons.

I was wondering, will the lesson feature ever return to Duolingo?

What do you mean the lessons disappeared? I still am presented with lessons when I click on a skill.

Before the "crowns update", when you clicked on a skill you would see several boxes (the "Tips and notes" were below them at the same page) which had a specific set of words which you could also redo.
