In the lesson on simple Passive tenses an example is:
Les étudiants étaient accueillis par le directeur tous les ans.
The students were welcomed by the headteacher every year.
In this lesson, we have the example above: Elles ont été surprises par ...
They were surprised by ...

Not a question - just a comment. I wasn’t sure if the correct spelling should be “jeux vidéo” or “jeux vidéos” with an additional s. This exercise accepts both options, and so I researched and found that even the French have discussions about this point. Apparently in “le bon usage” the adjective “vidéo” is invariable - but “jeux vidéos” is often also found in common usage (and in Quebec the official French language office has even added this form in their spelling rectifications of 1990, making both spellings legitimate, at least in Canada)
