Tree Updates


I saw a thread stating that Spanish and Italian have had their trees updated to better reflect the content of the CEFR. I was wondering if any updates/changes were being made to the Russian tree to improve the content, fill in any gaps, or just generally improve the course.

This isn't to say the course is bad. It's awesome, and a learned a ton. But who doesn't want to learn more?
