Suggestion: More variety in the 'strengthen skills' Swedish lessons?

Would anybody else like the strengthen skills sections have more variety? I just decided to strengthen skills in animals and spent the lesson writing "en mus" and "en myra" about 6 or 7 different ways each. This is a trend I've noticed that each strengthen skills lesson covers a very small section of each subject.

I know that it's not possible to cover everything, but only 4 different animals were mentioned in the whole lesson (mus, myra, elefant och varg) out of probably 25 covered in the animals section and I thought this was a particularly good example of what I see as a general trend in the strengthen skills lessons.

Apologies if this has been mentioned before, I did search the forum but didn't see anything.

    This happens only during the first skills. As you will level up, there will be more variety. However, if you want, you could strengthen each skill separately, or redo the lessons.


    Hi Despoina,

    Thanks for the advice, I'll probably redo lessons instead of skill strengthening until I reach a higher level. It's just something a lot of people in my Swedish class who've started using duo recently have mentioned and I thought I'd see what the general opinion on here is.

    Anyway, have a lingot for taking the time to reply!


    I thought this was a known issue with Duolingo and they are working on fixing it? Because it is true, the practice lessons really only practice 2-3 words, leaving out all the others. I still have trouble remembering how to say "sorry" or "please" because they only appeared once in all the lessons and practice sessions I ever did, and I have to look them up in a dictionary.
