French timed exercises too difficult - not enough time credit given for correct answers!
As a Duolingo student of four romance languages, I notice that the French exercises are MUCH more difficult than the Spanish, Italian or Portuguese exercises. The sentences are longer, their meanings tend to be more esoteric (less down-to-earth), and, most annoyingly, correct answers are given less time credit (in the timed exercises) than the other languages. Further, where the other languages will let slight mis-spellings slide, the French are way too exact.
Please review and harmonize
I have been learning French for the past 5 months, and I am having exactly opposite issues. I have been finding the sentences extremely easy, and I occasionally find the multiple choice questions downright hilarious when it comes to challenging a person’s ability in that particular language. I do not find your comment representative of the issues faced by everyone using Duolingo.
