Very fun and interesting way to work on French vocabulary and grammar. I liked
also how I was able to work at my own language proficiency level in the crime

What a fun way to build vocabulary and practice your grammar skills. An
engaging and absorbing site for all levels of proficiency.

This site was a lot of fun and very useful. I worked through the whole thing at
the easiest level. The mouseover pictures and other vocabulary and grammar
features were also very useful. I learned a lot from this site and it was very
easy to use. Thanks.

Technical Remarks:

No problems and the site was well coded.

Very nice site. Great way to test your level of French in an interesting and
interactive format. Like a French Carmen San Diego.
