Practice option is too often unhelpful/basic

I'm working on studying Korean, and I like the randomized nature of Practice to help me review things I previously studied. However, Practice feels very heavily weighted towards reviewing incredibly basic things like the Korean alphabet. I have a 379-day streak and am doing 5-10 lessons a day; I want to be reviewing all the grammar and vocabulary I'm at risk of forgetting, not how to write doughnut or Starbucks in hangeul. Is there a way to turn off the alphabet units so that I'm more likely to study things I want to review?

For me, Practice has started working only after all basic lessons before the first checkpoint were gilded.

I've gilded the first two checkpoints worth of lessons. No luck :(

after finishing the final level for basic hangul, duo starts giving harder practice and less revision on hangul letter. maybe try that?

I have all the alphabet lessons 100% finished, and about 20 lessons are golden. Still getting hangeul lessons, unfortunately.

I noticed a couple of days ago that my practice sessions are not reviewing much from the alphabet anymore and it's more from the last couple of lessons I'm on. Maybe you should check back and see if it's like that for you too.
