Professeur vs professeure

I am finding this one tricky, because in Québec (where I am living and learning French), professeure is standard (and indeed, is my job title). Is there any way to account for or acknowledge regional differences in spelling and usage within Kwiziq?

Bonjour Sarah,

Thank you for your comment! Kwiziq does concentrate on Standard European French ("Metropolitan French") as it is the language used globally. In the case of "professeure", it is now accepted as a correct spelling by L'Académie française. Therefore, this should be factored in when marking users' answers.

However, as Kwiziq is focusing on Standard European French, our system will not display correct answers in Canadian/Belgian/African French.

I will pass on your comment to our French language team.

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée!
