Assignments - Lešon  3

This assignment page will tell you what I want you to turn in as homework. Send me those pages marked with an asterisk *. The Plan contains the answers to all or most of the exercises that follow.  Feel free to check your work before you send it to me.  Many of these exercises will also appear on your exam.  Check the exam description for details.


Your first assignment for French in Action lesson 3 is simply going to be a part of your review of the introduction and lesson 2.  Just write out and send me the French equivalents of the following. 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.
