Weird, broken Japanese examples

Every time I get to the example sentences, it’s a mix of Kanji and Katakana for Kanji I haven’t learned yet…it makes the sentence structure very confusing, trying to decipher characters only to find out it’s a kanji I haven’t learned yet.
Is there a way to turn this off and just get the normal sentence?

No. The idea is that they don’t use kanji you haven’t seen on WK yet.

It’s like this till lvl 20 or so.

I will recommend the Anime Sentences script if you haven’t seen it. For some vocabulary it will add a lot of examples, as well as audio. It’s not perfect though, since it’s a machine searching for the words, but usually pretty good. You can also use a browser add-on to identify unknown Kanji and words. I like 10ten, but there are several out there.

On a related note, you will find that many common words are written in kana and not Kanji. Many WK users suffer because we know a kanji, but fail to recognize the kana forms.
