XP in Practice without a timer

Hey Duo! Could it be possible to gain XP in Practice without timer? I use this function a lot to train my skills to golden, but rarely gets a lot of XP. Sometimes I use it for an hour, but only gets 20 XP or so, which is so demotivating :p I don´t use the timer, since I like to read the sentences a few times before submitting. Why is it so, and is it possible that it could be a new feature? Maybe half XP?

If you use the "strengthen skills" feature you get from 10-13 points depending on how many hearts you have left at the end. However, you don't get any points if you run out of tries/hearts before completing the exercise. You get 3 tries and the fourth mistake ends the exercise. Since you have all the time you need, Duo expects you to try to be error free, hence no points for too many errors.

You already get XP for practice without a timer -- ten points for completion plus a bonus point for each remaining heart, just like a lesson.
