Écrire en français
Looking for a fun way to practice writing in French? You’ll love the self-scoring translation exercises on my co-branded site, Progress with Lawless French. These challenges are available exclusively to PwLF subscribers.
Every week, we publish different levels of writing exercises. You’re given one phrase to translate at a time:
Next, you’re provided with the correct answer and a scorecard. Rate your translation from 0 to 5, then move onto the next phrase.
At the end, your scores are totaled, and you’re provided with the list of grammar topics covered in the challenge so that you can brush up on anything that you had trouble with during the exercise.
Weekly challenges are included in Premium PwLF accounts but you can get a taste with these free samples:
- Level A1: My Neighborhood
- Level A2: Weekend in Lyon
- Level B1: Trip to Paris
- Level B2: Welcome to Bordeaux’s tourist office
- Level C1: Pompidou Center
(Explanation of levels)
A huge index of writing challenges is available for Premium PwLF subscribers, with new ones added every week. Here’s how to get those:
1) If you already have a Premium PwLF account, go to communications preferences or click “modify communications preferences” at the end of any PwLF email. Put a check next to “system communications,” save, and then keep an eye on your email every Friday for the Weekend Workout (which also includes dictées).
2) If you have a free PwLF account, upgrade to Premium and then opt into "system communications" as above.
3. If you don’t have a PwLF account, you’re in for a pleasant surprise, because writing challenges are just the tip of the iceberg. Progress with Lawless French is a state-of-the-art program that can supercharge your French learning at any level. You start by taking a comprehensive proficiency test and then the A.I. designs your personalized StudyPlan, updating it every time you take a kwiz so that you’re always improving and moving forward – learn more.
