The questions get repeated. Are you just randomly choosing questions from a database?

That's right, the question are chosen at random. You can see the number of questions and the question selected on the question page. There are only a few questions because the quizzes are new. I think I'll add more questions soon.
If you want to see a quiz with lots of questions try the ones for Swedish or Japanese.
hee hee...

This is WAY FUN! I have been using Linux for just a couple of months now so I went to the Starters section. Every time I got "dire" or "terrible" I thought, hey, that's ok, I'm totally a beginner. And every time I got it right, I was pretty proud of myself. I'll keep coming back and see if I can move up the scale over time. Thanks!
