 WARNING - FINAL REVIEW MODULE 1

(English version)

 

Hello to all!

We reached the end of the module 01 of the grammar of the Portuguese language.

Following a review is 50 exercises regarding matters discussed in the lessons of 01 to 39.

To get the most use in the rest of the course, it is essential to continue the case only reaches a success rate of 70%, ie 35 questions. If the index is between 50% and 69%, ie from 25 to 34 questions, go back to previous lessons and do a more detailed review. If the index is below 50%, ie less than 25 questions, stop, do not proceed, return to Lesson 1 and start the study as if it were the first time. Sometimes it's better to lose a little bit of time at first, but learn solidly than trying to move forward without having the necessary foundation to absorb new topics that tend to go deeper and deeper.

Feedback will be published next Saturday, when it will initiate the module 2.

                   I'm open to criticism and suggestions in order to better be able to serve the interests of the group.

Good review and until next Saturday.

PS: Do the exercises without consulting the theory.
