moving up levels

When you move up a level, does it actually get more difficult or is just that you've gotten points and opened up new lessons. It doesn't seem like its gotten much harder, so just wondering.

It's just a way of gamifying the learning experience. Plus, it does get difficult the further you go with the lessons because the topics are more "complicated".


I see. yea it does get harder because the lessons build, but i was wondering if there was another less obvious difficulty component. Plus, I was starting to get nervous that if I can get to level 7 so quickly I'd get up to some ridiculous level and then get everything wrong or something. Thanks for responding!!

When you do content from the real-world we use your level (among other things) to estimate what difficulty sentences you're able to do.
