Pronunciation exercises and repeated words

When Duolingo asks for a phrase or sentence to be pronounced, if certain words are repeated, the second instance doesn't register. This is a nuisance especially in timed exercises, because the failure to register the second instance means my seconds will drain away. Sometimes the program will decide it's "good enough" without the second instance, but it still takes awhile to decide that, and uses up the time. Anyone else have this difficulty?

I have a lot of difficulty in general with pronunciation exercises. I've played around with it and have found that I can omit words altogether and it still marks me as correct. I can also say a phrase perfectly and it's like it doesn't register all or part of it properly or something. Or it highlights the wrong word. Idk. Seems like the mechanism just isn't that great.
