Using the Lociņš app, anyone can practice using Latvian verbs. There are various tasks: choose the appropriate verb form (Choose! Or Insert!), Connect parts of a sentence (Connect!), Compose a sentence from the given word forms (Assemble!), etc.
More than 180 Latvian verbs were used in the exercises. They are grouped thematically, such as 'Me', 'Family', 'others'. Students are introduced to verbs in the active and passive voices, and simple expressions constructed the present, past and future.
