Long time no see! (B2)

Ça fait un bail !

Marina and her cousin Tom catch up after quite a while.

Some vocabulary you may want to look up before or during this exercise:
"it's been so long since...", "...right?", "time flies", "do you ever...", "to hear from [someone] (news)", "to give no sign of life", "to lose touch".

  • Change my choices if you want

How the test works

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

- Hi Tom, it's been so long since we've seen each other! The last time was at Paul and Lucie's wedding, right? - I wouldn't have thought that it'd been so long! It's true what they say : time flies! - And do you ever hear from Tatiana ? Because she hasn't really given any sign of life since she and Patrick moved to the South. - Not really. We lost touch after Clara's christening. That's life, you know, my poor Marina! - We absolutely must go for a drink so that you can tell me everything.

I'll be right with you...
