Suggestions for tests

I have some suggestions to improve Rocket Japanese:
For “Write it”
  1. I notice the program is very particular with spaces, which is frustrating to me, as Japanese doesn’t use spaces.
  2. There is no indication when katakana is wanted, rather than hiragana. I know for loan words to use Katakana, but for example in the Section 5 test it was asking for katakana for numbers (like jyuu).
For “Know it”
Maybe develop more prompts for the level of politeness (especially for lessons 6.X where ther are multiple politeness levels in play).
For “Say it”
I notice Saiyaka tends to pronounce the “u” in “desu” or “masu”. Is that just Osaka accent?
