There are several options for extra practice.
1. 'Redo' and 'Practice makes perfect'
Start by clicking on the round arrow that appears after you’ve completed the lesson. You’ll see an option to redo the lesson, and also a ‘Practice makes perfect’ section that lets you choose between comprehensive and skill specific (e.g. listening, spelling etc.) practice options.
We suggest doing this the day after completing the lesson so that you can reinforce your knowledge over time.
When you’ve completed all lessons in the unit (and the post-lesson practice!) and you feel comfortable with everything covered, have a go at the ‘Story’ section (or ‘Conversation Practice’ for French Accelerated).
This section is harder than the lessons, and tests how well you can apply and extrapolate from what you’ve learnt.
3. The 'REVIEW' tab
After you’ve completed 2 or 3 units, go to the ‘REVIEW’ tab.
Here, you’ll find ‘Flashcards’, ‘Knowledge Cards’ (for most languages), the ‘5-Min Quiz’, and ‘Vocabulary’ and ‘Grammar’ sections.
You will have a Flashcard for every word and sentence you’ve learnt so far, and a Knowledge Card for every grammar structure you’ve learnt (these are phrased more generally than the sentences in your Flashcards). Make use of these in whatever way best suits your learning style.
When you feel ready for some exercises, go into the Vocabulary and Grammar sections. Make use of the ‘Custom’ option in the top right hand corner to change things up so you get a fresh set of exercises and don’t keep repeating the same cycle.
Finally, test yourself by doing the ‘5-Min Quiz’.
4. The 'Fluent' module
Want to do some extension practice?
Some of our language courses (currently Chinese, French, Japanese, Korean and Spanish) also have an extended learning module — Fluent. Fluent uses dialogue based teaching to build your conversation skills, and reinforces learning content through listening, speaking and writing exercises.
(Note that we usually recommend completing Level 1 of the language course before starting Fluent, but this is not a prerequisite.)
