Check the corresponding section and find the rules and examples needed to consolidate your knowledge. It’s really easy to navigate through the subjects and to find whatever you are looking for.

5- And what about a MOOC to consolidate your skills or acquire new ones?

If you want to practice and learn more while exchanging online with French  teachers and other students from all around the world, what about trying a Massive Online Open course in French? They offer flexibility since you can connect at your convenience to watch the videos and read the documents provided, complete the exercises and post your questions/comments on the dedicated forum. For example a MOOC designed for the B1/B2 Level offered by the platform Coursera just started on June 12.
