Greek character font & spacing is confusing

I know somebody posted about this on the Greek discussion forum, but I wanted to add it here in the hopes that it might be fixed.

I have been working on the modern Greek lessons for about three weeks now, and sometime yesterday when I went on the font and spacing of characters had changed. Up until now it was ordinary, like this "θελω ενα φρουτα...".

But now the font is bigger, and the letters are spaced in confusing ways. It is hard to tell where one word stops and another begins.

Here are two screenshots of what the font looks like now: https://imgur.com/BjNoClN https://imgur.com/CcFgfcT

Thank you for all you do to make this a fun way to learn languages! I've really been enjoying the lessons, but it is much harder to complete them with this confusing font and character spacing.

Same thing for Cyrillic fonts, as of Nov 14 2017 on macOS across multiple browsers (Chrome, Firefox).
