ABC sentences

I find the sentences from the ABC lessons quite confusing. As the first lessons they were fine and quite clearly the letter and then a word with that letter or the letter and the spelled out name of the letter. However now I am at level 5 and every couple of days I use "strengthen skills" to revisit the items that I have done before. Now they surprise me because they aren't sentences and I almost always get some wrong - writing θ instead of spelling it out for example.

it would be great if these lessons could be separated out from the rest so I don't revisit them - I'm practicing all the letters with every other lesson anyway! I know this can't be changed right now, and maybe it needs to be a change from the duo side anyway, so this is really just feedback for the future.

Thanks for all your effort on this course so far.

I'm so sorry to hear that. What in particular was frustrating. Any feedback will go a long way; we can edit, correct or even delete some items. Some are locked at the moment but later we might be able to get to them.

I think the biggest thing was spelling the letter out. Or the translations with the letter and the spelling of the letter.

First μπραβο for doing the Strengthen skills section frequently. I'm not sure how much access we have to those sections. I've sent a request the other team members to see what we can do. Thanks for the feedback. We are trying to perfect the course and feedback goes a long way towards that.
