The tooltips on the words are not very helpful when they don't point to any of the correct answers.

In addition to the out-of-nowhere kanji, my word bank only had いる, notいます. Duolingo has almost always used -ます form thus far.

Why do they suddenly give the kanji as option, without ever having showed them? I don't mind, but it's a bit odd

They give us the kanji for this... but not for most other stuff that's been around since the first checkpoint. I hope when this comes out of beta, it'll have a lot more kanji usage.

彼氏 is pronounced as かれし. I had to look this up when i noticed there was no voice on this word.

The hiragana is now in the tool tip for "boyfriend" along with the kanji, at least for Android. So that is a great new feature. But hopefully the kanji will be updated with sound soon.

Why is it は and not が?
