(Forgive me if this was address in another post, I did a cursory search to see if anyone had posted it before posting this thread and it seemed mostly original...at any rate...)

In the Prepositions 1 and 2 lessons (I haven't gotten to 3 yet :P) I noticed that the prepositional pronouns are listed, but not the preposition + an/na forms, even though the an/na forms appear in the lesson. I didn't know if this was intentional or not, or if Duo may consider expanding the charts in the tips/overview of the lessons to include the an/na forms as well?

Just a little suggestion, I know it's not a big deal but Irish has been a (fun!) challenge for me, and every little bit helps! :)

Most of them do not have different forms when followed by an and na. Some that change:

do and de to don and den. le to leis an/na. Faoi to faoin. ó to ón. trí to tríd an. i to sa/san and sna.

Unless I listed na, it doesn't change for them.
