New duo?

Timed practice seems to give much less time. I am struggling even with English words, if they are particularly long. Even if i know the answer straight away i just dont type that fast. Also when the time runs out the page clears and i dont get to see the correct answer which is annoying, because its nice to get a confirmation that what you though is correct is actually correct.

So there. Really grinds my gears.

I've noted all these bugs as well. Additionally, time doesn't always seem to be added for correct answers.

As an issue for both the old and new timed-practice I'd love to have links in the "lesson review" to the forum discussions. Currently I have to google them individually and it's annoying.

Please go back to the old way on the phone. Timed sessions cause people to race the clock not take the time to learn. When you make a mistake you don't take the time to read the correct answer since you are racing. Plus it takes much less time to acquire the same XP. My goal has been 30 minutes daily. The old way that was about 5 or 6 sessions for 50 or 60 XP. Now it takes about 15 minutes to acquire 50 XP.

Actually just realized that I guess less time since the mic setting was turned off. I was on my phone one day and it never reversed. With mic questions its easier. Still dont like some of the changes though.
