Some vocabulary you may want to look up before or during this exercise: "(not seen someone) in ages", "to recover from (a night out)", "to have quite a bit to drink", "to lend", "thrilling (book)", "to give [something] back", "anyway (change of topic)", "what's up?", "to have a job interview", "to get a job".

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:

- Hi Isabelle! We haven't seen each other in ages! - Yes, I believe last time was at Paul and Sophie's house. - You're right! I'd had an excellent evening, but it took me a good three days to recover from it! - Yes, me too, we'd had quite a bit to drink! By the way, that reminds me that Paul had lent me a thrilling book that I still have at home! - You haven't seen them again in all this time? - No, and as a result, I haven't been able to give it back to him yet! I absolutely must pop over to their place this week. Anyway. What about you, what's up since last time? - Oh, nothing special: we're still looking for a new flat [US: apartment], but we haven't seen anything interesting so far. And you? Weren't you supposed to have a job interview? - Yes! And I finally got the job I wanted! - Congratulations! I knew you'd get it!

Let me take a look at that...
