Weekend workout: French writing and listening challenges for Friday 10th of August 2018

It's time for your Weekend Workout with a mix of writing challenges and dictées! We love getting your feedback so please do get in touch about both the functionality and content - what's good, what's bad, what could be better?

This week's theme is Everyday Life - here are the writing challenges:

Level A2: At the shoe store

Level B1: Busy schedule

Level C1: Gardening weekend

And here are the dictées:

Level A1: Une journée chargée (part 2)

Level B2: Laissez un message

Also, last week we sent out the wrong link for one of the dictées - sorry about that! Here's the correct link:

Level B2: Description du docteur Arsène K. Merlan

Note: You can retake these exercises via the link on the final scoring page. 

These tests are self-scoring, so after you translate or transcribe each phrase in turn, you'll be shown the correct French to compare to yours so that you can give yourself a score.

After each question, you'll find links to lessons on the grammar covered so you can easily add tricky ones to your own Notebook.

In these writing exercises, KwizBot offers corrections for each phrase, to help you pinpoint your mistakes as you self-score.

Please note that this feature is in BETA, so you may encounter the occasional bug or glitch. Please do let us know about these by responding to this email so that we can get them fixed asap. As always, screenshots and information about your system (OS and browser, including versions) is extremely helpful. We'd also love to know what you think about the new format and function: good, bad or indifferent.

Already on our improvement list:

  • Improvements to KwizBot's corrections (ongoing)
  • Automarking (once KwizBot is clever enough, hopefully quite soon)
  • Kwizzes and English at the end to test and reinforce comprehension (once we figure out the smartest "Kwiziq way" to do this)
  • Audio speed control (technically challenging, so it may not be soon, but it's on the list)

I hope you enjoy these challenges! Please don't hesitate to let me know what you think of this format!
