A new set of self-marked Writing Challenges and Dictées is sent by email to Premium subscribers every week.

How does it work ?


Writing Challenges and Dictées 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).
