Random Test

By default, words are chosen randomly, with mistakes automatically re-appearing more often.

Ordered test

Words most commonly used in French will appear first.

If a question is answered correctly the first time, it will not appear again

If a question is answered incorrectly, it will appear again very soon.

If a question is answered correctly, but has been answered incorrectly in the past, it will appear again at some later point in the future.

Turn on French keyboard for better typing accuracy

While it is possible to type French using any roman keyboard, you will get more accurate input by switching to the French keyboard. This is because while the keys may look the same size on screen, their actual touch sensitive areas are different, the iPhone actually changes the touch sensitive area of each key depending on what it thinks you're most likely to press next depending on the language you're in.

You can turn on the French keyboard by

Now you will see a new globe key on the bottom row of the on-screen keyboard, which you can use to switch between the default keyboard and the French keyboard.
