Hi Sabine,
at some point we experimented with having words in more than one lesson.
In the end it turned out that it is very confusing how to manage this in the 
user interface and requires quite a bit of special casing.
In the end, it was decided, that the overhead of allowing this with the 
current library we use to manage kvtml and the extra user interface bits are 
not worth the effort.
