How can I type accented letters?

This article is only relevant for Frantastique course, our French training and certification.

Many French words require accents. It's dumb, we agree. If your keyboard doesn't have accents enabled, please use the references below to help (mobile, desktop or tablet).

On a computer: 

You can use the integrated virtual keyboard. It appears at the right-hand side of the exercise box.

On a mobile device:

Simply press and hold the letter you wish to have the accent for. A list of accented letters will pop up for you to choose from. For example, to type à, press and hold the letter a, then choose à. To type é, è, ê, or ë, press and hold e, then make your selection. For ç, press and hold the letter c, etc.
