Some french words are not covered during a lesson

although you can see the new words at the begining of the lesson, during the learning process, you dont encounter those words.

for example: in Adverb 1 section, I completed lesson 7, however, I never encounter these words "notamment, particulièrement" that I assume I was supposed to learn.

This is not the first time, I have seen this problem in the past.

Also, sometimes (or maybe always?) that I am required to strenghten the words and review the lessons, I face those uncovered words for the first time, now I am not sure if it is the strategy used by DL team, or a bug!?!

I don't know either, but the same thing happens to me.

I have used the mobile app (iPhone) recently and noticed that it presents words the website doesn't. Don't know if that's always been the case or not.

I have also noticed that I won't see words the first 2 or 3 times through a lesson but frequently the 3rd or 4th time I do see them.

I figure I'll eventually see the word, or not, and I'll learn it, or not... eventually, if it's an important word, I'll learn it through reading. But it is kind of odd.

I used the app recently and noticed that I could put literally anything in and it would count it as right. I did one of the food lessons entirely by putting in "Kittens". I used to use the app a lot (before this started happening to me) but ever since that happened I haven't used it at all.

This happens all the time to me. Most lessons only seem to cover three of the words listed at the beginning and may touch on one or two of the others but it seems pretty consistently that 2 words don't get covered at all. And then I get dinged much later in a strengthening exercise. Argh. For what it's worth, I am completing lessons entirely through the app on my iPhone and iPad mini (iOS 7.1.2). Example words include: Leur/leurs, mots, recettes, couleurs, marron, vêntement, portefeuille , que, quand, q'. I'm sure there are others but these are ones I can remember. I'm glad to know I'm not the only one experiencing this problem.

yep, sometimes I feel some words are not even covered in the lessons but do appear when you go for 'Strengthen skills' and then you lose a heart :P
