How does it work?



Writing Challenges are self-scoring exercises, meaning that for each phrase you’ll be offered corrections to help you pinpoint your mistakes, but the marking is up to you!

Once you’re done, you can read and listen to the full text in French, and also see a list of grammar topics covered in the exercise.

Remember if you want to kwiz any of the lessons again, you can add them to your notebook(s).

I love these exercises. I am just wondering, if in the future, given the great technology, would it be possible to answer the phrase orally? It is just a thought. I struggle to speak the language - and I was thinking if we had to answer orally, that would help to speak. I know it is a big ask - but Google Translate can record your spoken sentence - not always great - but fun.

I love these exercises. With them I've greatly improved on my French. Keep it up. I just love French and that's why I want to learn it
