Ridiculous times allowed for Timed Practice

A common example is an eight word translation required and five seconds available to do it.

Does it start with 5 seconds or is that after using up your time on previous questions? I wouldn‘t find the timed practice useful if it gave any more time. I like it the way it is.

Check out my previous post https://www.duolingo.com/comment/25837973. There are people who would like it to remain as is ... it was suggested by another user to possibly offer varying lengths of timed tests.

Not being a very acurate typist when pushed, I am frustrated by the shorter time allowance too!

Can't begin to count the number of times my time runs out when I'm 1-2 letters from the end of an answer.

I up-voted.

But it is in the wrong (language) sub-forum!
