TEST YOUR FRENCH
EXPRESSION DRILL EXERCISES
Drill exercises are a very important way of instilling confidence in writing. In our drill exercises, French Notes have provided you with key expressions, which can be used in a variety of opinion questions, narrative writing or diary entries. By taking the time to use the expression in a few different contexts, you will get to really understand how to use it, and it will add fluency to your written expression. We have provided the answers to the various exercises, but we suggest that you attempt these first, and then check your answers!
