Select exercise types?

Hey guys,

So I've been thinking, can we have a feature where you can create a custom practice lesson consisting only of the exercise types you want?

For example, if you're having difficulty listening to speech you can start a custom practice lesson for yourself with only the "Listen and type in Spanish" exercises.

Or, if you're having difficulty with pronunciation you can start a custom practice lesson for yourself with only the "Click record and say" and "Click record and translate to Spanish" exercises.

I find when I go through a lesson I like drilling myself on it, but more often than not I need more practice listening to the words than typing them. I know that text-to-speech and speech-to-text engines are very hard (and expensive) to make accurate, so I understand if you choose not to include as many listening/speaking exercises in new lessons for balance purposes, but I'd like to repeat a lesson with only one exercise type.
