In the last couple of months , there have been numerous comments about the serious problems people are having with the timed exercises. This needs to be completely re-evaluated .People are getting very frustrated by the timed lessons and exercises ,and a number have brought up quitting. We are working on learning a language ,not joining the CIA. Let me say again- all timed exercises, in any language offered, need to be on an optional basis. Many of us cannot type above the speed of molasses and/or the equipment we have is slow. I'm sure it also is taking many of us a lot of time to be sure of the answer anyway. This topic ,as may have been noted has generated tremendous interest, but to date we have noted nothing but silence from Duo. Some people have commented that they like the frantic nature of timed exercises- fine,then they should be allowed to keep using them. However, many people who have commented, and I am sure many others who have not- are ready to scream about this entire issue.
I dont understand you. On my screen it is optional. I red that there are different testing groups. Are we from different testing groups? When I choose lesson practice, I have the chance to practice without timer. The white button 'Practice without a timer' is left to the green 'Start timed practice' button.
Thanks! I checked the US international keyboard layout (Win 7) virtual keyboard . . . I don't see those characters. (Curious, what is the best keyboard layout for typing in Spanish on the Windows platform, I'm familiar with the keyboard shortcuts to like ALT+0225, ALT+0237, etc. Personally I find typing in Spanish on my mac much easier.)
Those characters are entered with AltGr.
