In the Trainer, you’ll find over 30,000 exercises to help you learn and practice English in five different areas: vocabulary, grammar, reading comprehension, listening comprehension and writing.
There are five levels of difficulty and the teacher decides which level is appropriate for each student.
When you choose a section (Grammar, Listening, Reading, Vocabulary and Writing), you’ll go to a page with all of the available exercises. The exercises that you have already completed appear in green. Just click on the exercise you want to do.
After you click on an exercise, read the instructions on how to complete it. If the exercise is reading or listening comprehension, you’ll see the text or the audio recording. When you’re ready to start the exercise, click on “Go to questions.”
Once you have started the exercise, you’ll see the number of lives that you have available, the number of questions you have answered and the timer. You must answer each question to move on to the next one. After you select your answer, click “Next.”
If your answer is correct, you’ll hear a nice sound and move on to the next question. If your answer is incorrect, you’ll see a window with the correct answer. For each wrong answer, you lose one life. If you lose all of your lives, the exercise will stop and you’ll have to start over.
After you finish the exercise, you’ll see a summary and the number of points that you earned.

Passport is the game area of Kuaderno where you can use the virtual coins that you earn as you progress through Kuaderno’s content.
In this section, you have to complete a special mission: discover the planet Earth by visiting different cities and buying souvenirs in each one. Click on “My Mission” in the Passport screen to learn more about it.
To access the cities, you have to do different activities on Kuaderno. When you try to go to a city, you’ll see a window that tells you what you have to do to unlock that city. (Activities that you have already completed will appear in color and pending activities will appear in black and white.)
Once you have unlocked a city, you can enter and read a short text about it.
Further down on the screen is the souvenir shop. Each souvenir has a price. To buy a souvenir, click on it. Remember, you have to buy at least one souvenir in each city to complete the mission.
You can also see which of your classmates has already been in each city or whether you are the first one to get there.
You can return to the list of cities by clicking “Back.” Unlocked cities appear in beige and the rest are in black and white.
Beneath the list of cities, you’ll see the badges you have obtained and all available badges. To get more badges, do more activities on Kuaderno. The badges you have already obtained appear in color and the rest are in black and white. You can click on each badge to find out more information.
Beneath the badges is the My Souvenirs section where you can see all the souvenirs you have purchased.
At the top of the screen, you can change your avatar by clicking on the pencil that is next to your current avatar. There are lots of avatars to choose from. You can buy and collect avatars using the virtual coins you earn. Each avatar has a price and you can click on each one to decide whether or not you want to buy it.
