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.

Technical Remarks:

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.
