ExecTimeoutException: Program took too long to terminate

I’ve been having some issues with the python program taking to long to execute and then the python program terminating all together. I am currently on the lesson

Pig Latin

Here is my code:

print 'Welcome to the Pig Latin Translator!'

# Start coding here!
original = raw_input("Enter a word: ")
if len(original) > 0 and original.isalpha():
  print original
  print "empty"

Sometimes the program will run correctly after a few seconds. Other times the program just terminates itself.

Things I’ve Tried:

  1. Clearing my browser cache.
  2. closing google chrome and reopening it.
  3. restarting my computer.

I’ve seen this issue on other forum discussing but I haven’t seen a solution.


Actually yeah, this is happening to about everyone… I suggest reporting a bug.


after one year, this bug still happens


2 weeks later and… same issue here.


This keeps happening to me too… I reported it but I don’t know if that will do anything

Im having this issue as well. I am on part 3/11, once I click the run button nothing happens except a loading symbol. After 5 minutes or so it displays an error.

I received the same error on a different lesson - I did not have any problems with this lesson but I cannot remember what browser I was using at the time.

What I found when I experienced this error in a later lesson was that it was browser specific.
I got the error when using Edge but not Chrome or Safari - I tried the different browsers from the same Mac.

almost two years later… still experiencing the same bug…

Same here, in the whole Latin calculator exercise I am facing this issue.
