FREN 105 -- The Plan


Leçon 7

If you have been here before and know where you want to go, select from the following options. If you are new here, start at the beginning and scroll through the lesson. Click on the back button to return to the top.



Mise en oeuvre







Of course, we must pay attention to the review process. You will be expected to translate the questions and answers from the previous lessons into French. I won't ask you to send me your work, but you should practice putting the English sentences into French.

* Leçon 7 --- Review --- Questions and answers in English

Leçon 7 --- Révision --- Questions et réponses en français



Now read the text for leçon 7 (pp. 32-35) and use the text vocabulary sheet to try to figure out what everything means.

Now I want you to put the English page above back into French, sentence by sentence. You don't need to send it in, but the more you work on this exercise, you better grasp you will have of the text material. Remember that on the exam I will expect you to give me the English equivalent of any in the text.


Mise en Oeuvre

We will also have, of course, questions covering the leçon 7 story line. The Mise en oeuvre section concentrates on the description of Robert, but I will not ask you to translate the questions and answers. In this lesson you will be expected to be able to give the French equivalent of the following description. Your exam materials will be taken from the following.

* Leçon 7 -- Description in English

Leçon 7 --- Déscription en français



As usual, you will be expected to describe the pictures in the workbook. Click on Images for the French descriptions and the English equivalents. Practice writing the French sentences, using the English sentences as your cue.

We also need to consider several exercises in the workbook. Again, I will provide discussions of the exercises and links to the answers and English equivalents. Selected exercises will appear on your exam. The following will be featured on your exam. You should be able to do them as they appear in the workbook.

This exercise could also appear on an exam. Practice it until you are totally familiar with the situation and can fill in the blanks without any kind of prompts. I have provided the English equivalents in case you need help figuring out what is being said. You know where to click by now. :-)

Many of these sentences and phrases will also appear on the page of French to English translations.
