Translation:I will study tomorrow.

UGH, It is giving me the same two exercises over and over again, one after another, it's so repetitive and it's getting so annoying.
Can someone please fix this? Like it literally just give me this and the same thing with あさって five times in a row. And then I hit skip and it marked me wrong. I din't hit skip because I didn't know the answer, I hit skip because I was sick and tired of this pissantery, I was sick and tired of doing the same God-forsaken exercise over and over again.
Please can the course developers or team focus on the EARLY lessons first? Some of these early lessons are so full of really deep flaws and like, I understand you've poured HOURS and HOURS into this course to make it work, and there is some great stuff in it, but the early exercises are the ones that are going to be taken / done by a larger number of people, I think they are important to make a priority.
It's aggravating for me to get through this course because it's so tedious and repetitive. This is like the third time I've given up and come back a few weeks later because it's so repetitive. I can't really muster up the patience to get through some of this garbage, it's so annoying. It's like a condescending teacher, the sort I had to put up with in elementary school. I'm so done with that nonsense.
So like, update...after starting and stopping the lessons twice, it suddenly gave me a WHOLE BUNCH OF NEW MATERIAL in the lesson. ❤❤❤? This is a really weird glitch. Why didn't I get access to this in the first place?
It's like going really haywire.
I wish there were a way for me to report this without having to file a bug report, that form is tedious to fill out and hard to get to...but I took the time to do it anyway.
I just feel sad and frustrated.
I gather the administrators know this already but this lesson (Activity 1 - 3) is short on examples, so you can only get through the lesson by repeating "I will study tomorrow" & "I will study the day after tomorrow" one after the other about 30 times. Repetition is kind of built into duolingo anyway, so when it's like that it just gets tedious and my brain slowly dies ...
Also, this exercises didn't accept any Kanji...neither for 勉強 nor for 明後日.
This is starting to get really frustrating because I'm trying to teach / learn the Kanji myself, and one of the best ways to test myself is to type them into DuoLingo.
I understand that this course is in Beta, but I haven't progressed very far in this course, and it's really frustrating to see such basic Kanji still rejected, even a few weeks after the course's launch, even in very early / elementary exercises in this course.
Can the contributors please prioritize adding all the Kanji? I don't understand why it is so hard or complex to do so, can't people just add a Kanji solution whenever they add a normal solution? Or like, could they write some sort of script to automatically detect Kanji solutions? Or maybe a search to go through and like, automatically generate a bunch of these things, at least for the common words?
I'm a programmer and it seems like this wouldn't be too hard to do, and the number of exercises seems manageable. It's like, for each one exercise on the site, there are going to be thousands of people doing the exercise OVER and OVER again so it's just not efficient for us to keep being marked wrong OVER and OVER again, when a simple few inputs from someone behind the scene could address these problems.
"Study tomorrow" is a sentence fragment in English (or an imperative) so Duolingo wants you to provide a grammatical English sentence, you can write "I will study tomorrow" or "she will" or "we will", since you don't have the context here, provided it's grammatical correct in English and accurately translates "study" and "tomorrow". That's just how Duolingo works!
