Frantastique Ortho was developed for native speakers and advanced (C1 and above) students who want to refine their written French. Therefore, it has a stronger focus on the particularities of French grammar and vocabulary than its French as a Second Language counterpart, Frantastique.
After seven days of assessment you will receive 15-minute daily lessons via email, tailored to your current level. Unfortunately the lessons are limited to 5 days per week, thus lowering its overall value.
What makes Frantastique unique is the precision in which its algorithm assesses and adjusts the difficulty of each lesson based on your responses to the last 150 questions. The daily lessons follow a humorous storyline with both French and Quebecois characters; they provide listening comprehension, grammar drills, new vocabulary, comics, and culturally-relevant videos.
Unfortunately, with an exorbitant price tag and limited lessons per month, it’s more economical to experience the free trial and then look for an alternative resource.
