Hi Caroline,

On Kwiziq we use accents on capital letters but you are not wrong, it's a matter of preference and that's the way we have chosen.

Bonne Continuation!

Accents are actually used on capital letters.

It is not incorrect to use accents on capital letters in French - the Academie-française still encourages it. However, in regular publishing and everyday writing they are often left off.
