New words not highlighted in Korean and Japanese courses

Does anyone else experience that in both the Korean and Japanese courses new words are almost never highlighted in yellow, like in all the other courses? Like, I just did the Korean skill 'Basics' and in the third lesson not a single word was highlighted, even though plenty of words were new.

I have noticed this a lot, too, both on the website and the app.

Glad I'm not the only one with this problem. I also miss how in the other courses simple words are introduced using pictures - it doesn't do that in Korean or Japanese.

It doesn't seem limited to the Japanese or Korean courses. While doing the German course I've noticed recently that many of the new words I come across that are meant to be introduced to me in the lesson aren't highlighted. This ends up making me think I should know them until I exit out or finish the lesson and check the list of new words that's given, only to find it's something new... I assume it may in fact be a site and or app wide since the German course has been around for sometime now and I wouldn't expect errors like that from a course that's been around for such a long time comparatively.
