Suggestion: Switch between Cyrillic and Latin alphabets after finishing question?

I have noticed that there is a switch near the top of the screen that allows you to switch between Cryllic and Latin characters while answering a question. However, once you finish, you can no longer switch between languages. As a beginner answering most of my questions in Cryllic I think it might be beneficial to me to be able to switch back to Latin characters after answering as an aid for the pronunciation of certain words.

It is better to learn directly in Cyrillic from the start and use Latin as little as possible.

If you're having trouble remembering the sounds of specific letters you should practice reading and writing simple words on paper (use cursive if you can!). Using the Latin alphabet won't help you with this.

If you're having trouble with the actual pronunciation, the Latin alphabet will actually hurt you here because the sounds are not the same, especially щ.
