Timing

Does anyone else think that the time limit in the "refresh" and "bonus round" activities should be lengthened once one begins to reach the higher levels? The sentences start to become too long to answer within a two-minute time limit even while typing at a high speed.

I agree. The timer should also stop when looking at discussions. I lose moneys when I'm reviewing other peoples language issues and that's not fair. :(

I agree. And I as a non native english speaker would thank for the option s to have some extra seconds for example 35-40 instead of 30.

I agree. Used to time-practice a lot at the beginning of German course, but now I choose practice without timer. The advantage of timed practice is that you get points if you answered at least one question. In a regular practice you can lose all the hearts and get nothing.
