and so forth.
Up until that point, the kana used for the quiz words at the end of each lesson only include those already covered and explain any new parts like the ー etc.
Can anyone help me come up with some more words that fit these guidelines for the last half of the quizzes?
We could probably add some small notes about the ッ etc if need be etc.
What do you think?
