I agree. The speed review is IMHO not usable as it is programmed right now.
Same for me with Portuguese (BR) and the offical PT1-5 + PT Basic courses.
With the existence of longer sentences 4, 6 or even 8 multi-choice answers are ridiculous.
I can not even read the full sentences that quickly.
Even if I concentrate just on 1-2 words per sentence, to simply eliminate the wrong options, I fail to quickly select the correct option.
This is especially true after multiple correct answers where the timer bar does not start anymore from the bottom but at 1/2 or 3/4 of the bar height.
You never know how high the bar actually can go. It does not go higher than the top line of words, but you do not really see how high it can go.
As soon as the timer restarts to grow up from below after ~15/20/25 words, I can actually manage to pick correct answers.
Sorry, but who has programmed that timer crap and visual aiding???
Even for the DuoLingo Portuguese BR course, where no sentences are added and only single words have to be choosen, I always fail to bulk review 100 words in a row because of this bad timer design, especially as soon as it starts at 1/2 or 3/4 of the bar height.
Is it really that hard Memrise to program something actually useable?
I only can hope that some really good user script programmer jumps in and does their job
Thanks for your attention.
