Words missing from lessons

Sorry if this has been asked already, I couldn't find an existing discussion.

I've noticed sometimes when I do a lesson, one or two of the words listed in the lesson overview do not show up. I do most lessons two or three times for review anyway, so usually I get the missing words eventually, but I've done lessons 2 & 3 in "Food" (Irish) three or four times each, and there is a word in each lesson that still hasn't come up in a sentence. I've noticed this especially in Irish, but it has also been happening in French lately, (although not quite as much - the word usually shows up the second time through), so I'm guessing it's more than just a beta issue.

I know the sentences in the lessons are random, so is this a bug or just bad luck?

yeah, same in English for Korean learners. But when I was learning Italian and Dutch, the same problem didn't occur. Bit strange really.................

At least it isn't just me. I don't mind doing a lesson twice to make sure I get all the words, the review is good for me. But after 4 times I get tired of that lesson and want to move on, only I know I haven't gotten all of the words yet. :/
