The problem is that lesson R5->(8) contains more than 20 lines
(including header, instructions and footer):

I:(8) One- to three-letter words (m to z)
S:Dear Tom,
 :     Mr. May has one new car.  It has a low red top.  The top
 :is so low you can not see the sun if you sit in the car.  Mr.
 :May has not let his own son use it.  I saw his son try to put
 :the top up.  I ran and met him.  Why not be men and run the car
 :out?  We did.  We set out to run it at six.  We two ran it off
 :to an old lot by the sea.
 :     Did his pa see us?  Yes, sir, who but Pa was at No. Ten
 :as we ran by in the car--and Ma, too.  Oh, it was war--his pa
 :had a lot to say.  Let me lay out the law to you.  You may not
 :use the car as you did not pay for it.  You are not yet a man.
 :Son did not lie nor did he win his way.
 :     How are you all?  Now if you get a new car, let me run it.
 :Yours sincerely,

There are two ways to fix this:
1. We truncate the speedtest to <<20 chars.
2. You use a larger terminal (80x24).

Since "normal" (text) terminals are 80x24 or 80x25
I tend to say that you should use a larger terminal :-)

Have Fun and Best Regards,
