Strange translations in flashcards

I've seen a few strange translations in the flashcards. Some have been like cocina-->kitchen instead of he/she cooks. (I know it can translate both ways) But a particularly strange on was personas-->(you) appear in court instead of people. Is this just such a new feature that there are inevitably going to be some mistakes? I just wish that it was more clear about which translation it wanted, such as showing the part of speech. Has anyone else had these same thoughts about the flashcards?

I agree. I usually just assume that since I knew it meant something else that I got it right. Sometimes the definitions that show are something that I have not learned yet so I just brush it off and move on.

You still have it? My flashcards were removed and changed into the timed practise.

When you go into words, it's on the right hand side under 'spaced repetition.' It's not on the home page and you don't receive any xp for it. Maybe it's still in beta so only some users have it?

No, I used to have it, then it turned into timed practise. It was removed for some reason.
