I'd like to know why the C1 quizzes focus so extensively on the Passé Simple. The tense is never used in speaking, (except perhaps in a stilted academic discourse), and is encountered primarily when reading.
For example, on a recent C1 quiz, seven of the ten questions were on the Passé Simple. I'd rather have my quizzes focus more on idiomatic expressions. Instead, the passé simple questions come up over and over again, even when I score a perfect "10" on a given quiz.
I am sending your question to the helpdesk.
