Some vocabulary you may want to look up before or during this exercise: "a hike", "to feel like [something] (fancy)", "cured meat", "a waitress", "to make a choice", "as a starter", "a main (dish)", "onion soup", "raclette (dish)", "to recommend", "nice (food)", "filling (food)".

I’ll give you some sentences to translate into French

  • I’ll show you where you make mistakes

Start the exercise

Here's a preview of the text for the writing challenge, when you're ready click the start button above:

- After this long hike, I'm very hungry! - Yes, me too! I feel like cured meat and cheese. - Hello! I'm your waitress Emma. Have you made your choice? - I'll have the onion soup as a starter, and I would like the raclette as a main please. - I don't know yet... I don't want a starter, only a main. What do you recommend [to me]? - Our Three Cheese Salad is very nice and quite filling. - Perfect, I'll have that, thank you. - And also two hot coffees, please. - Very good! I'll be back with your coffees.

Let me take a look at that...
