Wednesday 6pm: Summary #6

On Wednesday, we started by going over Week 5’s vocabulary in French, as usual. Then you told some anecdotes about what you got up to when you were at school – it was most amusing 🙂 We had a quick look at the plue-perfect in French. We will definitely see more of that next week, but in the meantime, please feel free to check this out. After, we started to have a look at French idioms… We will continue next week!

1) Explain the vocabulary in French
2) Finish the exercise about French idioms (choose the correct answer)

3) Find 2 English idioms (like “kill 2 birds with 1 stone”) then try and find their French equivalent. A good place to start is Wordreference. You must be able to explain what it means in French 🙂
