How about a "Second Chance" option?

Sometimes I oversee that the plural is asked and so my answer is wrong. Could there be an option like a "Second Chance" so that you are informed that you have typed in some minor mistake and get the possibility to correct the answer? Also sometimes I miss the plural s on my keyboard and so I loose a heart, that feels kinda unfair. Would be nicer to get the chance for correcting myself instead of just the message that I'm wrong.

I don't have an answer, I just agree. I love getting the feedback in English, but if I just made a typo, I get annoyed that I can't just fix it. A second chance would be a perfect option.

Agreed. It is particularly annoying when you get punished for small mistakes that are not in the topic, like confusing plural in the dative case lesson.
