The differences between english and esperanto alphabets are already explained in the tips and notes of "Basics 1" and "Countries & Nationalities". (Apart from g and r, unfortunately. They should really add those.) You can get pronunciation examples from the existing exercises. Yes, I think all the letters should be in one place (namely Basics 1, I can't think of a reason why we'd need an additional lesson for the alphabet alone) for convenience and clarity but thankfully it's just three letters that have been separated. IPA notation would've also been useful in my opinion, though that can be found on wikipedia, here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Esperanto_orthography

Unfortunately, people can't edit courses. However, you might be able to message one of the course contributors (a list of which is here: https://incubator.duolingo.com/courses/eo/en/status) and request that this skill be added in the next version of the tree (if they end up making one).

This seems like a good idea. Perhaps duolingo should add this as a lesson plan. Overall, I'm still confused how to pronounce c's in Esperanto; I think other people also have this problem with pronunciation. This definitely should be a lesson.
