Has anyone else noticed that when you do a practice session, it will sometimes bring in words you've never used before?
For instance, I was just practicing pronouns, and it brought in bits of negation and even time. I have started learning time, but not negation so why does this happen?
I did indeed. I finished both German (near native speaker) and French (grammar school). In general my problems were not new words, but the impossible translation choices made by duolingo. Getting new words sprung on me is more annoying in Spanish because I am really learning that as a new language. On the other hand: I have a good dictionary.
To me it seems like Duolingo is forcing you to move on from one area to the next. I've deliberately not used Duolingo as often as I did 2 weeks ago and as a result I've still not 'mastered' time, but have done Verbs 3.
Having not even started family etc, it was already throwing in various family members into Verbs 3 learning. Now I have gone back to Time and not only am I getting family but also ages and numbers - admittedly not hard to work out - but frustrating because all I want to "revise" is Time and Dates.
It's like Duolingo says "No you've been on this too long, have a new challenge lol". Which would be okay if I had started the lessons on them but I haven't so...whatever.
