Bug in the Christmas Skill, or just horribly done?

I purchased the Christmas Skill today (I figured the timing was finally correct). The first two lessons had a decent amount of material, but the third one wound up frustrating me to no end. After the first four sentences, every single sentence after that was exactly the same (using the word 'buñuelos'). To be honest, I could care less about buñuelos, and the fact that I had to type the same sentence with it over and over again was absolutamente ridiculous.

So is it a bug, or does the third lesson just lack content (a.k.a. it was horribly done)?

The same thing has happened to me in other skills before this, actually.

If the sentences truly come up more or less randomly, this can happen. Just like tossing dice - the same combination PROBABLY won't come up twice in a row, but it might.

The exact same thing happened to me when I did that lesson on the day that the Christmas skill was released. The sad thing is, even after all that, I can't remember what buñuelos are, except that children eat them.

Omg, we totally forgot about cooking Buñuelos for this Christmas D:

A buñuelo is a sweetened flour tortilla, which is fried and then sprinkled with sugar and cinnamon. It tastes delicious and looks like this:

It's also Donut. My gf is from Peru and she uses that word for donut.

That's weird. I did the Christmas skill (English to Spanish) and never got "buñuelos" a single time.
