You wish to work on a specific grammar topic? Learn or revise the articles, the auxiliaries, the pronouns, the question tags, the tenses… You will do many exercises and can of course print out the grammar sheets.
When learning a language, the written and oral comprehension is essential. That’s why Captain Language invites you to work on subjects taken from everyday life (asking the time, asking for directions, taking a taxi, postponing a meeting). You will also learn to make introductions, express your preferences, talk about others or yourself.
Every day, Captain Language chooses lots of current articles for you. This way you will work on topics the media are talking about at present.
The section “News” also allows you to work on your own texts. Simply copy-paste one of your french texts or an article from the internet to create exercises around the texts of your choice.
Besides the lessons, grammar, vocabulary, comprehension, expression and news, you can relax by watching videos chosen by Captain Language, discovering famous quotes, reliving moments from history or reading Captain Language’s jokes.
At any time you can look up the meaning of a word or its translation, and listen to it or pronounce it yourself. How? Just double-click on the word you don’t know (yet).
15 days before your training ends, a test to assess your level is offered to you to measure your progress.
