New word character+meanings not easy to connect

Not sure how everyone else is experiencing the course, but I'm finding learning new words in the lessons challenging for the following reason:

When a new character is introduced, you connect it to the spoken Chinese word. Fantastic. However, its not until the end of the lesson when you get actual sentences to translate that you can connect it to a meaning!

It would be really helpful if a character was introduced with its sound AND its meaning at the same time. Currently it feels a bit disconnected. Or maybe I'm missing something obvious???

Agreed. It is useless to associate a sound with a character without any indication as to meaning.
