"Education" section keeps forcing American usage

In the lesson titled "Education", a number of questions do not accept translations of grades as the actual meaning of the word (numbers 1 to 5) but instead insist on converting to the presumably American A-F system.

This must go.

We are learning Russian, not American school systems. The discussion section for each such question is filled with people pointing the problem out.

Furthermore, it is teaching incorrect translations, since the words are actually numbers and not letters!

Fix it.
Allow literal translations, like "he got a two" instead of insisting on the American letter grades.

Other language courses seem perfectly capable of accepting translations using non-American English, so it's not a technical issue. This lesson just needs to be fixed ASAP.
