Duolingo is getting cheekier the further I get down the tree...

The sentence is too long for Timed Practice.

Yes. And there is no way to report that.

This is so cruel when you get it while listening

I waited months and never got it... I doomed the cruelty of this sadistic owl when I started hearing "во-первых" as if he wanted to tell me "first of all, I am gonna make you suffer, second of all, screw you, third of all I hope you have trouble writing this one" ;'(

When I got it, it was already fully written out lol. I didn't have to do anything

Ты че такая дерзкая?

This is my sentence "Во-первых, уже поздно. Во-вторых ,я хочу есть. А в-третых вам пора идти домой". I don't see the difference

You have a typo there. It should be "в-третьих", not "в третых".

This sounds as if one would be running somebody from one´s house

this is far to hard for listening


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Rekty

But it helps you to write the firstly, secondly and thirdly properly.

The stress on пора is wrong again

Yes. It sounds пОра. But it should be sounded порА. I sent the report about this mistake


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mb505

It crossed out "Second" but then said it would accept it


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/RogerRivero0

Why, if you say "first of all" not "second of all'' and so on? Or why use the "First of all" and not just ''First"?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ULRICHSCHL4

"Firstly, it is late. Secondly, I want to eat. And thirdly it is time for you to go home." This is what I answered, although in DL it is the first time I heart this form of reference numbers in english. And now it is rejected.

Again one of those sentences which are easy to understand but hard to translate even if you follow the translation hints ... Duolingo should be a bit more generous!
