Freeform Writing Exercise A2
It is just because the term 'la rentrée' means 'le premier jour de retour à l'école', you will see it in adverts aiming to sell items like cahiers, crayons, stylos, livres ...
Bonjour Kay et Chris !
Indeed, "la rentrée" is the colloquial term in French to talk about going back to school and also going back to work after a holiday break. Here, I agree with Chris that "Comment s'est passé le premier jour de retour à l'école de Tom ?" is a correct sentence, though quite cumbersome in French. So to remove any unnecessary complication in this low-level exercise, I've now added a clear hint to use the word "rentrée" :)
I hope that's helpful!
Merci et bonne journée !
The only thing that rubs my ear is the order of "de Tom" and à l'école. I would switch that around: Comment s'est passé le premier jour de retour á l'école de Tom?
