Duolingo should do a tree with the missing words

Maybe three quarters the size of this one with some crucial vocabulary that got left out due to conciseness. They could make the Duo Story thing too I wouldn't mind either.
p.s. I live in Tanzania and Russian/Swahili have the same word for diamond "almasi" "алмаз"

Very good idea I wish I hope they take note as it would be useful. Another good idea would be to add the section like in french where they let you hear a word or part of a word sometimes and then you must choose from 4 options to find the right solution. This helps you get a firm handle on the pronunciation more.

John: Excuse me, how can I get to the cafe?

Коля: Mмм…кафе… идите налево и там будет «Бистро».

John: Oh…to the left …«Bistro»…I also need to find bank.

Коля: Банк? Недалеко от Бистро!

John: Not far from «Bistro». Thank you! Bye!

Коля: Бай! :)

G’day, mate!
Джон: Извините, как мне найти кафе?
Nikolai: A cafe? But it is not what you need. Go to the left and there you will see the liquor store.
Джон: О! Спасибо. Но мне ещё нужен банк.
Nikolai: The bank is next to the liquor store, but it is closed right now.
Джон: Закрыт? Замечательно! Хорошее время для грабежа. Пока, я побежал.
