Lessons and quizzes are great for improving your French, but it’s always helpful and fun to add some variety. If you’re ready to try something different, check out the Weekend Workout from Progress with Lawless French. This weekly feature consists of a set themed exercises – one for each level (A1 / A2 / B1 / B2 / C1), so there’s always something for everyone. Many subscribers say that this is their very favorite PwLF feature.

The Weekend Workout includes two different kinds of self-scoring exercises: dictées (dictations) and writing challenges. Writing challenges are English-to-French translation exercises, while dictées are French-only, combined listening and writing practice. Find out more about these exercises and try a few free samples here:

The Weekend Workout is available exclusively to Premium PwLF subscribers. Hundreds of exercises have been published since June 2018, with themes like cinema, food, going to the vet, and Francophonie, and these are all available to subscribers in the Weekend Workout archives.

In addition, a new set of five themed exercises is added every Friday. Here’s how to receive the Weekend Workout by email:
