The authentic, varied, and current nature of the content makes this site, whose
materials educators may use free of charge, especially engaging for learners.
Exercises, which have been contributed by teachers, students, and others,
contain some inaccuracies, especially misspellings.

Technical Remarks:

Submitting exercises for scoring can be a problem. A feedback form for
reporting technical difficulties is readily available.
