Dictées:

Writing challenges and dictées are in a format which offers corrections for each phrase to help you pinpoint your mistakes as you self-score.

Writing

Please note that these exercises are in BETA, so you may encounter the occasional bug or glitch. Please do let us know about these so that we can get them fixed asap. As always, screenshots and information about your system (OS and browser, including versions) is extremely helpful. We’d also love to know what you think about the new format and function: good, bad or indifferent.

Already on our improvement list:

  • Improvements to KwizBot’s corrections (ongoing)
  • Automarking (once KwizBot is clever enough, hopefully quite soon)
  • Kwizzes and English at the end to test and reinforce comprehension (once we figure out the smartest “Kwiziq way” to do this)
  • Audio speed control (technically challenging, so it may not be soon, but it’s on the list)

So Kwiziq Premium subscribers, check your email for your weekend workout!
