Arabic letters too small, some Arabic characters come out as either a number 2 or 3

Same issue. LOVE that there is an Arabic language course on Duolingo, but still has a couple of bugs that everyone is pointing out.

Letters too small: On MacOS running the latest Chrome at least the Arabic letters in sentences are tiny, like about 6pt font. And yes, I could CNTRL+ to blow everything up but then I am looking at giant 60 point English letters and 11pt Arabic which is just silly from a UI POV.

3 and 2 are not letters: Some Arabic letters don't display, hamzah displays as a "3" and another letter displays as a "2" which I can figure out, but doesn't really help to learn the language.

Again WONDERFUL that it's here, but please fix the bugs.

And no, in normal written Arabic, such as a newspaper, Arabic fonts appear the size of English characters. There is clearly an issue that the Arabic web font used has a relatively smaller size that is not consistent with the display size of English fonts on the same page.


yes the 2 and 3 is because they don't have like the letters for Arabic, or the way u pronounce the letters also u already posted this
