Can you reply to a request from Switzerland for information about school life in your country? Here is your chance to practise writing a short paragraph in French by answering some questions.

Writing question: School life

In your controlled writing assessments, you will have to write at least 100 words for each task. If you are aiming for grade C and above, you will have to write at least 200 words for each. The practice exercises here are mainly shorter, just to help you gain confidence in your writing.

Read this typical exam question and think about how you would answer it yourself. Write down your answer on a piece of paper.

Question

A Swiss school wants to find out information about school life in the UK and have sent you the following questions. Read them through and look up any words you do not understand.

  • Comment s'appelle ton collège?
  • C'est un collège mixte?
  • Comment vas-tu au collège?
  • A quelle heure est-ce que les cours commencent?
  • En quelles matières es-tu fort(e)?
  • Quel jour de la semaine préfères-tu?
