This is a website designed to help students improve their French grammar. With over 200 different grammatical lessons and accompanying exercises, this site can be used endlessly. Also offered are cultural references and a riddle game. This website is easy to use, fun, and free to use online.
This website is rich in information and is a resource for students and teachers alike. Anyone can join the website and once a member, all work completed on the website is recorded. This benefits the user since they will be able to see which lessons they have already completed. It would be interesting if not only did the site remember which exercises a member completed but which exercises could be improved or should be repeated. Lessons are short and concise; they're easy to follow. Each lesson is followed by several exercises which are helpful. A few times, an exercise is encountered that seems difficult because not enough information is given by the site. In these cases, students might need to use another resource such as a dictionary or textbook. The main page of the website has cultural and literary information and a riddle which changes weekly. The riddle is somewhat difficult and tricky for students if they cant solve it. The explication shows how it is generated from the riddle, but does not give the correct spelling. Overall, it is a very helpful website.
The only problem encountered is that the exercises are case sensitive. In order to get an exercise correct, students must use accented and possibly capitalized responses. Fortunatly, this problem is solved once students understand how to add accents. It isnt really a default, since it encourages students to write french words correctly. However, in the beggining, it's an annoyance.
