When I open the first page @ start, I get a posting showing different french & english words. what I don't understand what to do with it.
If you try to click on the posting it will disappear?
Am i to copy the words on paper - then where do I post them for my progress and narks?
Hello willsong, I'm going to include more information than you probably need - to cover all possibilities. If I click on "Home" I see my skill tree.
If I hover the mouse over one of the sections of the tree (a module?) a black box appears. (I think this may be the posting you ask about. I may be wrong.)
The black box contains title, a gold button and a number like 1/999, a summary of the lesson, some sample words, etc.
If I click on the module at the side of the black message box the next lesson in the module appears.
If i click on the lesson itself a book appears. I click on the book and the lesson starts. (In my case the lesson usually has to be started several times - I have only done a couple of lessons in one go.)
Does this help?

You can see your words in Vocabulary section. But yes, it is also a nice idea to copy them to paper or a document. You should not hesitate to use other means of learning, it always does you good! For example, I use Duolingo for learning and practising words and busuu.com for interacting with people and practice of writing (not translating). I also keep a record of my new words in a Google spreadsheet and import them to Flashcards Deluxe on my iPhone. And I listen to Michel Thomas's audio course, it's just marvellous. And of course I browse the internet for grammar when I can't figure it out for myself.
