This should work.

(setq flash-training-sit-for-seconds 0)
(setq flash-training-sit-for-milliseconds 15)

(defun flash-training (begin end)
  "Reading exercise."
  (interactive "r")
  (let ((strings (split-string (buffer-substring begin end))))
    (while (not (null strings))
      (message (car strings))
      (setq strings (cdr strings))
      (sit-for flash-training-sit-for-seconds
               flash-training-sit-for-milliseconds))))
