Evaluation

Short description

This programme has a free of charge section as well as a fee-paying (Premium) section. The free section offers only limited, one-sided vocabulary work based on the set units, the reading of dialogues, multiple choice exercises and the writing of passages from descriptions/stories on different themes. In the Premium section you can listen to the dialogues, create interactive dialogues and record yourself speaking. In neither section are there any grammar explanations.

Usage in the language-class

One can use this tool as part of one’s homestudy (for the practising of vocabulary indroduced in the lessons).

I think that I'm very lucky to have learnt three languages as a child, because it means that I know three languages equally well -- and that I can change between them. It's a gift for me.
