Role play


Longer answers

In a dialogue, try to give full answers - you should dominate the conversation! The more you say, the fewer questions you can be asked! Imagine you're asked "Qu'est-ce que vous pensez de la France?" If you answer "C'est super", you've thrown away a great opportunity and will only achieve the lowest grade. This is your chance to express lots of ideas about the country / food / weather / surroundings / people etc. Don't waste it!
