The exercises that follow each reading or listening passage include multiple choice, fill-in-the-blanks, true-false and matching exercises that are designed to help you develop your essential language vocabulary and skills through context, testing and reinforcement. All of your results are stored in a database that you can access at any time to monitor your progress.
