Suggested strengthen feature

So, as I progress down the learning tree, I like to click the strengthen skill feature (the dumbbells at the bottom right of the app screen). I try and use this feature everyday so that I don't forget stuff once I move on to another section. However, I keep getting some of the same sentences again and again each time I do it. I am slowly going mad repeatedly translating 'I put a bulb in the pendant light' and 'A spider has four right eyes'. I get that duo sentences are often not that useful for beginners, but I'd dearly love to be able to block some of the ones that drive me mad. Once I have the translation reliably right, how about a little button that would remove it from appearing again? At least for a little while = )

I always wondered why they choose to teach "pendant light" instead of just a lamp. Same with the word "automóvel". Has anyone even used that word the last 50 years?

"Automóvel" is used in some contexts.
