To track your progress:

Knowing the chessboard coordinates is a very important chess skill:

  • Most chess courses and exercises use the algebraic notation extensively.
  • It makes it easier to talk to your chess friends, since you both understand the "language of chess".
  • You can analyse a game more effectively if you don’t need to search for square names.

A square name appears on the board and you must click on the correct square. You have 30 seconds to recognize as many squares as possible!
