A little issue

I enjoy these weekly writing challenges and learn a lot through them.  Still, I become a little frustrated when it becomes evident that I have chosen different  French translations for the suggested English words presented.  My choices may be fine synonyms at best, but the  concern is that they aren't really the best words for those contexts.  I recognize the value of looking things up ourselves,
but would it be possible to provide the exact French vocabulary we are to learn for these exercises instead of the English?

Bonjour Isabelle,

Thank you very much for your feedback. It is an excellent suggestion which will be taken into consideration.  

Bonne journée!

If this is done, I suggest it be done in such a way that it is possible to avoid the vocabulary provided. The learning value of searching, thinking about, and recalling is different to that of being provided words to put into sentences. I prefer the method as it currently stands - although, to be fair, I do have the advantage of being able to verify with my wife afterwards whether any different choice of mine that is not included in the provided answers is correct or at least an acceptable alternative.
