La science du langage

French C1 dictation exercise

Linguistics as a science made a giant leap thanks to one great discovery.

Some vocabulary you may want to look up before or during this exercise:
"ne pas dater d'hier", "nombre de", "décuplé", "la linguistique", "le sanscrit", "un philologue", "quelque [adj.] que", "l'emporter sur [quelque chose]", "le raffinement".

I'll play you French speech in sections for you to transcribe

  • Start by listening to the whole piece then hit start
  • Play each section and write down what you hear
  • I'll show you correct answers after each for you to mark yourself
