Issues with Timed Practice

I have recently noticed that timed practice is only giving me 16-17 questions instead of the regular 20, which is making it harder to strengthen skills that need to be strengthened. Is that normal? Should that be happening? Also, a lot of the questions are identical and repetitive. It's getting really annoying to do the same questions over and over again. I hope that this gets fixed in the near future.

A lot of people have had a lot of problems with Duolingo in the new year so I hope that Duolingo will fix all of these problems. Duolingo is an excellent way to learn new languages and it would be a shame to see Duolingo go downhill. Please Duolingo, look into this. Thanks in advance!

Hi, this is the French forum, for getting help with French grammar, vocabulary, resources, etc. Could you please edit your original post and use the drop-down list at top left to change the topic from "French " to "Troubleshooting"? That way it won't clutter up the French forum, and the answers you get might help others who look in Troubleshooting for answers to the same thing. Thanks!


Hey there Lrtward. This is not a glitch or bug issue per se ( I don't believe it is?) but really a plight to lengthen the time allowed on timed practices for all the courses. These types of complaints/ request have been popping up all over the place lately and I've even put one under the Polish language course forum. Would it really belong under troubleshooting? I thought the amount of answers on the timed practice ( 18, 19, 20 for example) that we are able to key in for each area of the tree, varied depending on difficulty and our personal progress rate, etc. like some type of algorithm set up in the system. I am curious as to where these postings belong and who could actually change the time allowed for practices. Thanks for any advice.
