Do you prefer timed practice or not, and why? Thanks my friends. Ed, UK. Learning German
No, I prefer the regular practice. I get the idea but I don't like to rush things up.
That said I occasionally do a timed practice.
I love the timed practice. I don't struggle with typing quickly and accurately, so it works for me. Timed practice doesn't give you time to think, you have to know the answer and type it. This is how I find out how much I've learned and retained. It's okay for the percentage to drop as long as I practice and gain it back.
I rarely use timed practice. I prefer to focus on strengthening my language skills rather than speeding up my typing skills. I supplement my language learning by using resources outside of Duolingo to speed up and improve my speaking, listening, reading, and writing comprehension.
