Please make it so there's a way to skip the alphabet exercises

I know the alphabet already, i don't need any help with it. i'm twelve or so lessons in and still getting alphabet lessons, and it's being a hugely demotivating factor in continuing these, and yet there is no way to ignore them. this is a big negative in the course.

Well, there's always the option to test out of skills. But furthermore, if you don't need any help with learning the alphabet, then I would think the lessons wouldn't be especially difficult for you to speed through and then never have to deal with again?

But they are mixed with all the categories. And I grew up reading the same letters

this cancer is especially true for the arabic course.

I think they assume that people who just started the course don't know the Arabic alphabet. You can try testing out of certain skills if you want, but a little alphabet review is always helpful. :)

same. unfortunately i cant learn other languages because of this nonsense. their alphabet teaching is absolute garbage. they teach via transliteration, which is very subjective... i do not want to have to MEMORIZE duolingos version of a transliteration that i disagree with. its nothing short of a confusing waste of time. im so glad russian doesnt have this nonsense.
