Nous voulons is talked about much earlier, Level 1 session 4, and is also present tense, "we want".
Il / elle voulait, vous vouliez, ils / elles voulaient are all past tense, i.e. he / she wanted, you wanted, they wanted.
Up to this point, level 1 session 9, there has not been any introduction to past tense. It is all present tense. I am not sure which session starts to introduce future tense but it isn't by session 9 but in a future session

The only "complete" conjugation we teach for now for To want is that of the present tense (Je veux, Tu veux, Il/Elle veut, Nous voulons, Vous voulez, Ils/Elles veulent).
Yet we decided to introduce "Je voudrais" (I would like) in the upgrade here because it is by far the most common way of asking for something at a restaurant, café or any shops... Since it is soo useful, we thought it was worth mentioning it from the first level, however, we don't want to get into the details of the complete conjugation in conditional tense. At this point we consider there are other "priorities" so we only get to this in higher levels. :)
