I think that after the lockdown you don't really believe that. Do you?

Exactly what came to my mind. At least we have Duo to do.

They should not introduce three new words in one sentence

I second this sentiment. I have a hard enough time remembering words without 3 new ones in one go.

The words are introduced in the hints.

It is much harder to recall all the words a week and two lessons later if they are not repeated constantly. Especially for a non-germanic or non-roman language, at least for me ;-)

Would this also be the word for "spend money" or is it exclusively used for time?

Viettää is for time, birthday, a nice vacation etc. Kuluttaa rahaa = to spend money. You can also kuluttaa aikaa but not viettää rahaa.

Sorry for a silly question. Why it is not kotissa or something like this? Is there a diference?

Kotona is something like an exception. You must learn it as it is.

Are we learning English here or Finnish? We should be writing in Finnish.
