Last error and disappearing owl

Can you slow down the disappearing owl when one loses the very last heart. It is almost startling that he appears so quickly. As though it was an exclamation point on ones failure. It also requires that we click to go back to see our error when it would be really OK to review it for a few seconds before he goes away and urges you to retry. Thanks for considering.

Please do, we otherwise do not have the time to learn what we did wrong ;-)

I agree... it's all a bit sudden. As frustrating as it is, I learn much more from getting something wrong and losing a heart than If I just happen to guess correctly. By exiting the game so hastily, it deprives you of a potential learning opportunity.

Thanks for asking this - it has been frustrating to me that I can't see the correct answer when I lose a heart on the last question.

I have finished lessons with heart or hearts remaining and the last page does not move, it just sets there. I have to do the same lesson over and over with hearts remaining to get it to move on to the next lessons. can anyone help? I have sent in the problem over and over.

Yes, I have had that happen, too. Also once in awhile it freezes in the middle of a lesson and I finally have to exit without being able to finish.
