Passe simple?

Very interesting, but is it truly A2? The second to last paragraph has lots of passe simple in it (prit, fit, eut), which doesn't appear until B2 level.

Bonjour Christine,

Thanks for bringing this up - you're right, this feature is B2. I've updated the level.

Merci encore et bonne continuation !
