Same question over and over

I'm between checkpoint one and two and I've noticed that when I reach level one on a topic and start a new lesson, I get the same question every other time. It is a word matching question with the same 5-6 words. Occasionally the lesson will consist entirely of this question! There's no use answering the same question over and over so I've just done the "key" which avoids this repetition problem. I understand the course is new, but it would be more use to make the higher level lessons identical to the original lessons rather than this situation. Thanks, love the course otherwise!

Hi! I'm also finding this repetition is driving me mad. Especially since I've already got a fairly good command of the Arabic alphabet, I'd like to really focus on vocab and sentence formation, not just sight-reading random words out of context! What is the "key" you speak of? How can I skip this matching stuff?

After you reach level one, when you click the lesson icon, instead of "Start Lesson" you should also see a lightbulb (for notes) and a key. The key lets you take a test to advance directly to the next level. There is still some of the sight reading random words but at least you don't have to do the same matching question over and over.

I feel the same way. Repetition is a fantastic exercise, but I'd love to see it changed up. I've about reached my limit with the matching stuff. I repeat it out loud, write it on pen and paper, and read it each time to get the practice, but it's getting old. Another thing that's driving me bonkers is that on the matching exercises, the English matches are mixed in with the Arabic words, so even though I'm trying to sound the Arabic word out, I can usually see the English one in my peripheral vision, which helps me. I'd rather see them in 2 separate columns or rows so I can cover up the answers and figure it out myself.
