How did you manage the jump from the first Part to after the first checkpoint?

Hi guys,

I have real trouble getting a good feel for the first two skills (food/animals) after the first checkpoint. I especially have problems with the Verbs, how they are conjugated and what makes the difference in I/he/she/they/we.

Do you have any Tips? I feel like I am senselessly grinding the skills right now.

Are you aware of the Tips and notes? Many users miss them, because they are not advertised by Duolingo too much. In a web browser (even a mobile one) after selecting a skill there is a light bulb symbol you can click on.

Fun fact, I personally haven't realized there are any Tips and notes before almost finishing the Russian tree.

I have read the Animals one since the Food one pointed to it for accusatives and just thought the Food page was the same as the Animals one just with different vocabulary. But I have missed the more extensive Verb explanation in the Food Infopage. Thank you so much.

For some reason these are nowhere to be found in the mobile app (iOS)? Has this always been the case, or are they just currently messing with the way the course works?

Do you have any idea when the Tips will be completed for the lessons after the second checkpoint? Once I found them (after finishing the first checkpoint), I don't want to miss them anymore ... ;)
