Hi yes, that is quite a glitch :) We're aware of it.

I am still getting this glitch when I do timed practice on my iPad. It seems to kick in if I get an answer wrong. I am also completing lessons OK but then the app crashes before I get any credit. Any ideas when this might be fixed please?

It's not fair to ask so early. Ask in another 44 years ;)

This used to reproduce before redesign if you submit a few answers very fast. I'm not sure if the scenario is still the same.

it only means that you practice very often, for me it is quite difficult if i am doing the overall one, and quite simple if i am refreshing a skill i already know

mhm, but for me its french, so not too difficult, except for the grammar and spelling sometimes. and also, the audio is very poor.
