I am now in verbs 2 spanish and the lesson has 7 levels. Because i'm not so fast in learning it would be great to have "strengthen skills" also when level is is not finished yet. Redo each single lesson often gives same phrases and "strengthen skills" is often more different .

And I would add, the general Strengthen Skill button from the tree view should not include unfinished sections. It should only include completed sections that are decaying. I don't necessarily want to include a tough section I am currently working on, with general practice of other topics.

I had not realized it included unfinished sections.

yeah, and you don't even have to have done any lessons in them. As long as it's unlocked by having completed the sections prior, it gets picked up by the general skills practice, or is at least not restricted and can get picked up. I am sure the code says to pick random skills for practice from the group of unlocked skills. But it should say unlocked and completed.

Interesting, I haven't come across that situation yet. (I'm at the directions/education part of my tree.)

I second this. Or, to take it a step further, perhaps a way to customize the skills you want to strengthen. Instead of a random sampling, pick certain groups (verbs past and object pronouns) or a mix/match of lessons from multiple groups.

Essentially, I enjoy strengthening my skills on the website for various reasons.
