I’ll give you some sentences to translate into French

Start the exercise

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

- Did you go and vote two weeks ago? - Yes, of course! I went (there) around noon, so there weren't too many people. - I don't know much about French elections. How does it work? - In the first round, there are several official candidates. For example, this year, I chose among twelve candidates. At the end of that round, if no one gets 50% of the votes - which is always the case in presidential elections - only the two candidates with the most votes remain, and we vote again two weeks later. - So you'll vote again on Sunday? - Yes, you should come with me to the town hall. - Ok, I'll come!

Clever stuff happening!
