Where are the lessons? It seems like everything is an exam.

It seems like everything is an exam and I have to look up every word instead of an explanation or meaning and then a test. Am I missing something?

You can use other sites like studyspanish or spanishdict to review the grammar of each section before you take the test.

It is not an exam, it is learning be doing!

If you do not know a spanish word just hover over it and get the translation. (I would not call that looking sth. up) If you can't translate from Englishso be it - you don't even get less points or something. Because we also learn by making mistakes.

You're not really missing anything, other than that the idea is to learn from your mistakes. Here's an explanation of the concept, opposed to what you were expecting.

You can always check the definitions of the words that are underlined with dashes to help you guess when you first see a new lesson. Sometimes it's not possible to guess right and you just have to get it wrong and then see what the right answer is to learn it. =D Don't let it bother you. It's a great way to learn, as it turns out!
