"I am Jenny."
This is Not translating the names. This is just how a name writes in another language. This is exactly the way that social media only accept English letters for ID. For example my family name contains a sound that there is not in English. It sounds X in Spanish or somehow ch in Deutsch. خ
Yes, 'Дженни' sounds like [Dzhenni], 'Женни' sounds like [Zhenni] - no [D]
When we say the name 'Jenny' (the English name in Russian), we clearly pronounce the sound [D]. That's why 'Дженни'
The sound of 'Ж' doesn't match with the sound of 'J'.
'Ж'[zh][ʒ] ≠ 'J'[dzh][dʒ]. It is necessary to get used to it.

I hope I could be of help. ))
I thougth the first lesson started with the russian (cirilic) alphabet... I need to learn from the beginning because I can not write it in lesson 4. I did first 3 lessons because it's easy relate sounds an images. I think this language learning app has to teach from the begining a non comon simbols like cirilic alphabet and maybe a list of equivalents in english alphabet. This will be a big step to starting learn russian
