Pause time during timed practice
I really like the timed practice. However, sometimes I get a question wrong and it shows the right answer, but then the time keeps ticking. So I don't really have the time to check what I did wrong. For the same reason it's not possible to comment on a discussion.
Would it be possible to pause the clock after an answer has been entered (and start ticking again when you click "next")?
As originally question was so nicely asked: "Would it be possible to pause the clock after an answer has been entered (and start ticking again when you click "next")?"
In this way is not eliminated "real life" training. Is just provided a bit of time to read and understand what one did wrong.
Duolingo is about learning and improving . And even when practicing close to real life, this doesn't mean that one should not have a chance to understand what was wrong and how to become better next time
If you're watching a movie or talking to a real person, you can't stop to review what you got right or wrong - that's what timed practice is trying to emulate. The whole point of timed practice is to keep you under pressure, and see if you can bring the right words to mind when you are trying to deal with your target language at "real life" speed.
Pausing in the middle of time practice wouldn't just be pointless, it would actually deprive you of exactly the skill that timed practice is designed to develop.
FieryCat is working on a userscript that will allow you to access the discussion threads after you've completed the timed practice, but for now, if you want to stop and review, use untimed practice - that's not what timed practice is for!
No es posible, no. (It is not possible, no.)
And wouldn't be possible to have it implemented in the future version released?
This feature has been requested for more than 2 years now and is unfortunately still not implemented.
The "feature" of reviewing answers as you go along is already available - in untimed practice! The whole point of timed practice is to provide something close to real-life, where you have to find the right words as quickly as possible, and don't have time to stop and think about your mistakes.
Even providing access to the discussions at the end of a Timed Practice session will diminish the value of timed practice somewhat for people who do multiple back-to-back sessions.
I'd almost go so far as to suggest that access to the discussions should be disabled entirely for timed practice - it would make it clearer that timed practice is designed to help you practice using what you've learned, rather than to help you learn from your mistakes. These are both useful learning techniques, but they are different techniques, and they shouldn't be mixed together.
I would like to understand for what reason should not be mixed together, when in the end is all about learning? :)
Why do you think they have both timed practice and untimed practice? It's precisely because they are different techniques that help to strengthen different skills. If you start adding delays to Timed Practice, you end up turning it into Untimed Practice, and you are no longer practicing the skill that Timed Practice is designed to improve.
