I totally agree.
I have a couple of words I can seem to remember or confuse with others,
I would suggest the first of your examples, writing the word 5 times, "new word = translation", in order to make it clear.

Would it be possible to download a couple of MB to continue learning while off the internet? I have more "spare time" when I am in waiting rooms, on traffic (as a passenger), and many other scenarios where I could be using my time to continue practicing.
I would suggest adding the possibility of downloading words to practice them offline, maybe half an hour worth of practicing. Plus the possibility of updating those downloaded words when reaching new levels.
RE: Categorize the words, Set levels like duolingo
I would not like to have categories, it would feel like I am "done" with each topic. Instead, having random categories pop up keeps me in alert.
The Lingvist team have added levels according to the total new words you learn which is great because it feels like a goal.
