A tweak to timed practice.

I think it would be a good idea if one couldn't run out of time on the timed practice, but instead were encouraged to work faster to get a higher score. Anyone agree?

Great idea. I can't do the timing practice in the time llowed so I am stuck at the stage I am at. Why did thy stop giving the option to do it untimed.??

Yes, I never use the timed practice because I am a slow typist and never get more than 3 questions. Maybe we should get the option to set the timer from 30 seconds to 5 minutes.

totally agree. 2 minutes to type, select special characters, submit, move to the next question, etc... not realistic. and i'd much rather work towards a better time than having a countdown.

I agree, I can't actually type fast enough to finish in 2 mins. I am a slow typer lol

Why not give a time bonus for every right translation? I know that I haven't even come close to finishing with time left. Having a few extra seconds added for each right score would still make it a challenge to work fast but would likely make it just that much more possible.

Well, it now does exactly that, it gives you a time bonus for right answers
