Weekend French writing challenges for Friday 8th of June 2018 - Books

This week's theme is Books - here are the writing challenges:

Level A1: My daughter loves books

Level A2: My name is Tintin!

Level B1: What literary hero would you be?

Level B2: The adventures of Fantômette

Level C1: Writer's Block

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.

This is the third set of challenges in the new format which offers 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

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