French Writing Challenges - Music

French writing challengesA new set of self-marked weekend writing challenges was sent by email to Premium subscribers. The theme is Eating – here are the titles.

  • Al: Learning the guitar
  • A2: My cousin plays the accordion
  • Bl: The best concert ever!
  • B2: My mother’s favourite singer
  • Cl: The benefits of music

This is v2 of our writing challenges, a format which offers corrections for each phrase to help you pinpoint your mistakes as you self-score.

Update: Premium subscribers can now retake challenges!

Please note that these writing challenges are in BETA, so you may encounter the occasional bug or glitch. Please do let us know about these so that we can get them fixed asap. As always, screenshots and information about your system (OS and browser, including versions) is extremely helpful. We’d also love to know what you think about the new format and function: good, bad or indifferent.

Already on our improvement list:

  • Ongoing improvement to the correction algorithm
  • Option to turn off corrections
