Are there any suggestions why ぢ , ぢゃ , ぢゅ and ぢょ apparently are essentially left out from the basic Hiragana drills ?

I cant remember a word in which they appeared, so they are probably not used due to same pronounciation as じ、じゃ、じゅ and じょ.

hi J

Good helpful answer; had wondered if it was perhaps because words contining them are unusual, yet so are words containing some of the forms presented in the drills, or perhaps that merely hadn't seen where drills were containing ぢゃ , ぢゅ and ぢょ , or if they might have been contained in the audio drill files, which don't seem to function on this machine; interestingly, there is a note with the Katakana dakuten chi material indicating that it's unusual; also, there is difference where correct to use them, and the pronunciations do differ slightly from じ、じゃ、じゅ and じょ, even if aren't in used a lot; thank you, Hanshi
