To the Mods: Request for Greater Variety in Spanish

I hope there was more variety in the practice sentences. I am literally tired of answering questions on 'tortuga' and 'manzanas'. Why can't there be naranjas and oso questions?

There really aren't that many sentences in the beginning. Progress further down the tree and you will rarely ever see those sentences again.

I guess there should be more sentences in the beginning then... I am afraid in a real scenario I might end up saying 'the turtle drinks milk' to someone not the least interested in turtles or milk.

Naranja and oso are both in the Spanish course, so if you redo the lesson you might run into them. It seems to me that you're more likely to get a wider variety of words if you use the browser version of the site rather than the app, but that may just be my experience.

Hopefully, duoLingo will include more animals and fruits in the future but the aim of the course is to teach sentence structure. Now that we do not have to worry about losing hearts I see no reason not to include more variety unless the program won`t handle it.

Its more about variety than animals or fruits in particular. I want to be able to imagine more than just apples. Because the more variety there is, the more interesting and stimulating it becomes for the brain.

I know. I was just kidding about the animals and fruits but your point is valid. More variety is needed especially in the higher levels.
