Your first assignment for French in Action leçon 9 is simply going to be a part of your review of the introduction and lessons 2 - 8.  I won't ask you to write out and send me all of these pages but work on these until you can do them without looking at the French sheet. When you can do that, you are ready for the review portion of the exam.
