And by the way, doesn't address directly to moderators here.
First, moderators are only community/forum moderators, they have no power on courses or lessons.
Second, the author of the courses won't read the things people ask here, it would be impossible, and this forum is only made for the help between users, about the lessons, grammar and vocabulary.
To send suggestions or improvement requests, you have to send the form, or click on the report button.
Any phones can type any alphabet, just go in the store. I downloaded SwiftKey for instance. I went in their settings and downloaded as many keyboards indifferent languages I wanted, including Russian. It has even an integrated translator in addition, and you can use Russian and English at the same time!
People are never satisfied! In other courses, they complain the course include local names (very common, in addition), and they say it confuses them, because they didn't known it was a name, and they lost one ♥. Here, it's the opposite.
But just think a bit, people. Here this unit is made to introduce the Russian alphabet, so its really better to have simple, short, and well-known names to be able to learn slowly the letters, than long typically Russian, and complex names as it has been suggested here by people!!
