Anyone else tried Kwiziq?

I have got to the end of DuoLingos EN-FR tree and I continue to revise with it. I find it helpful. But I just found kwiziq, which has both free and paid subscriptions. It is very helpful with the revision, with both multiple-choice and written answers but where it shines is: a) the multiple choices are hard, with many plausible answers b) you are marked after each batch of 10 answers and shown where you went wrong with a link to a good tutorial page that discusses the topic where the answer lies c) the questions adapt to give you more on the areas where you have the most difficulty. d) it is organized into the CEFR-like levels from A0,A1,A2,B1,B2 to C1 (for C2 you will have to go elsewhere - like to France). At the moment I place around A2 so it is helping me to stretch further.

Thanks. It sounds worth a look.

For Duolingo, if you are using only the app, try the regular website--it is much better, as it is almost all written exercises. Also, now that you have finished the EN-FR tree, start the FR-EN tree, English for French Speakers, which will give you lots of written translation into French--you'll like it. If it is too easy at first, since you have finished the EN-FR tree, just do the first level of exercises or test out, if you can, until you reach something more interesting.

I did not think of this! I haven't finished the tree but I have started to do French to English to help with translations. Please, take a lingot.

It is definitely worthwhile. Glad you like the idea.

I haven't yet but I just took the placement test. Can you tell me more about the free plan. Do I get only nine quizzes on that account ever? Or it is once a week, a month, or what? Can I test unlimited but not do unlimited lessons?? I can't do a monthly subscription of anything right now (or ever if you must have a credit card to get one).

So far I am on the 7-day unlimited trial. I have done over 50 quizzes so far. I understand that after that it will drop back to 10 quizzes a month if I do not start a subscription.

I have a paid subscription. I like it. I find it to be more rigorous than Duolingo. Through artificial intelligence, it makes you practice the skills you need to improve. It measures you in every skill area. The grammar explanations are good.

If you miss an accent in Kwiziq, you are marked "Nearly Correct."

If you get something wrong, you hit the "Explain This" button and the relevant grammar lessons pops up.

Maybe you can use the website from your phone if you prefer?

I have been using the kwiziq website from my phone. It is very mobile-friendly.
