Making mistakes is an important part of learning languages and learning in general. When we correct them, we understand our error, we remember what to do next time and we don’t repeat the mistake.

That’s why you should help other people learning your language by correcting their exercises in a clear and constructive way.

  • Use the toolbar above the correction area to highlight any mistakes – for example, put them in bold or in a bright colour.

  • Explain why you’ve highlighted the word or phrase and suggest a better alternative.
  • Give the post’s author a tip to help him avoid making mistakes
  • Leave an encouraging note to the post’s author to help them stay motivated and continue learning!
