Weekend French writing challenges for Friday 1st of June 2018

We are absolutely thrilled to announce some major improvements to our weekly writing challenges.

First off, they are now in the Progress with Lawless French system, which means that you can use our accent picker to type accents exactly as you do for kwizzes. But that's just the tip of the iceberg! The major improvement is that KwizBot will now offer corrections for each phrase, to help you pinpoint your mistakes as you self-score.


Please note that this new version of writing challenges is in BETA, so you may encounter the occasional bug or glitch. Please do let us know about these by responding to this email 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:

  • Ability to take the challenges more than once
  • Eliminate need to include speakers' names in dialogs
  • Ongoing improvement to the correction algorithm
  • Option to turn off corrections

And now without further ado, here are this week's challenges on the theme of French cities:

Level A1: My neighbourhood

Level A2: Weekend in Lyon

Level B1: Trip to Paris

Level B2: Welcome to Bordeaux's Tourist Office

Level C1: Pompidou Centre

These tests are self-scoring, so after you translate each phrase in turn, you'll be shown the correct French to compare to yours so that you can give yourself a score.

After each question, you'll find links to lessons on the grammar covered so you can easily add tricky ones to your own Notebook.

I hope you enjoy these challenges! Please don't hesitate to let me know what you think of the new format!
