Suggestion: Flag trouble/difficult words

Hi Duolingo! Thanks for the great app! I know Duolingo already sort of incorporates this into the lessons, but I think it would be really helpful if we could flag words that we know we always struggle with and then select an option to just practice sentences with those words. There are some words I get wrong every time, but I only see them once in a while. I would love to be able to practice those trouble words more extensively and specifically. Thanks!

Apparently peeking flags the word, or rather makes the system aware you aren't sure about that word

That would indeed do the trick. However, sometimes when I'm repeating the basics to get those strength bars restored, it feels 95% of the words are such that I've recurrently got right from the beginning, and perhaps one or two words in the exercise strike me as if I'd never seen them before.

Being able to manually flag a word as "challenging for me" would enable the system to provide me with exercises that contain more relevant practice.

Maybe DL's programming could simply increase the power of the flagging a bit. :)
