I’ll give you some sentences to translate into French

  • I’ll show you where you make mistakes

How the test works

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

The coming year promises to be quite intense! I will take the Bac exams in June, and I've already planned my entire revision [US: study] schedule. As I've always struggled with maths, I've decided to take private lessons this year. And every Thursday, I'll go to Antonin's house. He's a classmate who is super good at philosophy, so he will help me understand the main concepts. I've also prepared a fitness programme for myself: I will run in the park every other day, and I will drink a smoothie every morning. I will not leave anything to chance!

I'll be right with you...
