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.
i agree, drvdw
yea, i agree, they do need to adjust the times
Thank you Brother Rob! I too feel your sentiment!
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.
But it is in the wrong (language) sub-forum!
