Yes, provided you can pass the shortcut test/s...

There are shortcut tests that allow you skip an individual skill (ie Basics 1, Basics 2, etc) - you can see these as a button near the top right when you open the page for that skill. It says "Test out of this skill".

There are also shortcut tests that allow you to skip a group of skills at once. These are the gold keyhole symbols on your home screen. When you hover your mouse over them it says Shortcut.

You can test out (we give you three chances to do that per skill). I have studied Spanish for many years (but needed some practice for sure!) and started at the beginning of the tree. For many of the skills, I went right through all of them in order to brush up and re-familiarize myself. For other skills that I felt more confident in (present tense for example), I tested out. I do find myself going back again and again to skills that I've passed, but want to practice. Also, definitely try some translating. It's a good way to put all the stuff you know to some good use, and it can be a nice challenge depending on what sentences you decide to translate or edit. Also, know we are working on more ways for advanced learners to practice and learn.
