The writing lessons don't appear to be in the right order. The first one is na/ni/nu/ne/no and it introduces it as if you have already done 10 other hiragana. I imagine the first lesson should be a/i/u/e/o. THe second lesson says you have already learned 15 hiragana, but you have only learned 5.

that is true, they are no in order. However, I don't see how this should pose any problem, as in the end it doesn't really matter if the characters were learned in the chart order or not, they're still the same...

Well, I think it does matter. In lesson #3 it gives the overview of Japanese alphabets and gives the sequence, like the ABC, of their order. This clearly should be at the start. Then if you don't want to teach them in that order, it should say at the start that they will be presented randomly. It is confusing when you are just beginning to be told that you have already learned a number of hirigana, when you know you haven't and also doesn't it link to the other lessons, the audio and the culture lessons?

No, Kenny, this is definitely not all right. In lesson #1, you learn na, ni, nu, ne, no. In lesson #2 you learn ta, chi, tsu, te, to. In lesson #3 you learn a, e, u, e, o. In lesson #5 you learn ka, ki, ku, ke, ko. In lesson #5 you do sa, shi, su, se so. And then you get to lesson 6 and it says you have now finished learning hiragana. But we haven't leanred ha, hi, fu, he, ho or ya, or ra, ri, ru, re, ro. Where are they?

all of theme are there within the lessons. If you look closely under the Writing tab, you'll see that all of the characters can be found within lessons. Again, they're not in order.
And yes, you may have a point with the order issue, so you could try reporting this in the "Tiny Errors" topic on the forum and even giving the Rocket Languages a feedback email and afterwards, let us pray that they fix them .

Konnichi wa Sally san and コッド san,

Thank you for your feedback. The writing lessons have all been fixed now so you will find them in character chart order!
