ExecTimeoutException: Program took too long to terminate

Hello, I’ve been learning Pyhton and since I joined to CodaAcademy, It always appears an error when I want to input something.

Now I’m stuck because if I don’t input on my code, I won’t be able to continue.

Welcome to the Pig Latin Translator!
Enter a word:Traceback (most recent call last):
File “python”, line 4, in
ExecTimeoutException: Program took too long to terminate

It was the error, Could anyone help me?


Hi @danielamontoya540302, welcome to the forum.

That’s helpful. It’d be more useful, though, if we also had the code you ran to produce that error.

The Codecademy forum provides a quick and easy way to post properly-formatted code. All you need to do is look for the </> icon in the menu bar which appears at the top of the text box while you type.


Press Enter to go to a blank line, click that icon, and you will see this:


Just copy and paste your code directly from the editor into that highlighted portion, and all of the nicely-readable formatting will be preserved! Moreover, it will be in a format that can be directly copied and pasted into an IDE for testing. :slight_smile:
