Keyboard Shortcuts

There are a number of keyboard shortcuts you can use to get through our lessons and reviews faster and easier (i.e. without having to use your mouse/trackpad so much!)

Next / Check

Instead of clicking Next or Check, you can hit Enter or Return on your keyboard to move to the next question.

Speaking Practice

When you get to a speaking practice activity in a Lesson, you can use Control+Enter to start and stop the recording.

Multiple Choice

Use the numbers 1, 2, 3, or 4 to select your answer. The numbers correspond to the choices from left to right, top to bottom, like this:


When doing Smart Review flash cards, use the left and right arrows to flip the card and mark yourself right or wrong, like this:

  1. See the phrase in English
  2. Translate it out loud (or in your head) to Portuguese
  3. Use the ➡️ right arrow to flip the card and see the correct translation 
  4. Check yourself: ⬅️  left arrow = wrong    ➡️  right arrow = correct

Sort the Words

You can use numbers to select / deselect words. For example, to build the sentence below, you could either click the words in order, or you could type 2 0 6 1.
