Hiragana 2 Lesson 1 Bug

[deactivated user]

    I got asked a matching question (3 of them, actually) involving pairs that hadn't been covered yet (ri, ma & ho for the 1st Q, no idea for the latter 2). Skipping the question counted it as correct and I didn't have to repeat it. Unfortunately, the report function only allows me to report the audio as incorrect. I know this isn't exactly the proper place to report it but I'm not sure where exactly to do so. Pic related https://i.imgur.com/tiC8EpS.png

    It is pretty common among the courses, to include some material that hasn't been covered before. Luis answered why once, a long time ago (probably a couple of years ago. So, long buried in the forums.) I can't recall his answer or whether I agreed with it. But, it's just one of those quirky Duolingo things. It can be frustrating at first, because it goes against expectation. But, then it just becomes one that you'll add to your list of things that started out frustrating and then you just moved on about. It's possible they might correct this one at some point in the future. But, I don't recommend investing any energy into being frustrated about it. That energy is better spent enjoying the odd sentences. And, to save you in the future, remember that, for now at least, doors and windows don't "shut", they "close" ^_~

      Huh. When I submitted this yesterday it 404'd and said the page didn't exist. Anyway, I got it again today. https://i.imgur.com/OO9eci1.png https://i.imgur.com/loHYXWB.png https://i.imgur.com/PO1IC4T.png I find it unlikely す, and り are intended to make their first appearance in Lesson 1 (where they aren't shown as being in the lesson) instead of Lesson 3 where they are shown to appear. Maybe they are, but on a redo I got entirely different match questions that all had kana we had previously learned. I also got questions for よる and よむ with pictures that showed what they meant before the final 3 questions asking you to type out their meaning. https://i.imgur.com/THdvoxr.png https://i.imgur.com/UUlMVid.png https://i.imgur.com/Qcp3xm9.png https://i.imgur.com/DVaTft3.png
