First Chinese lesson feedback

I have just completed the two lessons of the Greeting 1 section of the Chinese course.

The course seems very well structured for taking away the confusion, and potential fear, of learning characters and the pronunciations provided are clear. I especially think the match the character with pinjin pairs element is very good. Thank you to the team.

None of the screens I have encountered have English translations on them, but in both lessons I was asked to translate the characters presented into English. This is a major flaw and should be immediately addressed. Otherwise, you have an incomplete learning platform and a learner is required to use other tools like Google Translate in order to answer questions and to complete the task the course should be providing.

If you hover over the Chinese characters it should give you the translations of that word or character. This is probably what you're missing.
