At the start of each lesson it says I have +10 - ?

I'm fairly famous for not reading explanations before plunging right in, so I'm sure this is my fault, but could you clue me in?

what do you mean by At the start of each lesson it says I have +10 - ?? ?

It's telling you how many skill points you will get for finishing that lesson

So I don't have +10, but I will have +10 when I complete it? And hearts are something separate? It's still not crystal clear for me. It's never 9, or 11, it's 10. Because of 10 questions? Aren't there more than 10 questions though? It seems like 20 questions sometimes. And if it's always 10, what's the point of mentioning it anyway? For a while I thought it was counting how many hearts I had to the positive, which would be interesting, but it's always 10.

Yeah when you complete it you will get the points, and each heart you still have at the end of that lesson is one extra point, so the max you can get is 13 points per a lesson
