By organizing students into Studygroups, you can review their Progress with Lawless French stats, both individually and collectively. Your Studygroup Coordinator account is always free.

As for students, basic accounts (with limited, ongoing monthly access) are free, and we offer substantial discounts for bulk purchases of Premium accounts (with unlimited kwizzes, weekly dictées and writing challenges, and your interactive brainmap).
