Like Quizzes?? Posted by Transparent Language on Feb 18, 2009 in Culture
I love to complete quizzes and surveys of all kinds – especially those you find in magazines. Hmmm…yes, I do have plenty of other things to do (work, study, take care of kids), but don’t we all need a bit of distraction in our lives? Well, I was just reading the French magazine Elle online and found a section where you can do online quizzes that I thought I would share with all of you. The current one is entitled Etes-vous une enfant de la télé which could be loosely translated as ‘Are you a TV-raised child?’. Anyway, you answer around 10-15 questions depending on the quiz and after you respond, an explanation of the correct answer is given. It’s a nice, short way to practice and improve your French.
There are also some other quizzes in the same section including:
Cinéma: connaissez-vous vos classiques? on films
En avant la musique on music
En avant la chanson française on French music
Tout sur Alfred Hitchcock on yes, you guessed it, Alfred Hitchcock.
Below is some vocabulary that might help you take the quizzes.
Commencer le quiz = Begin the quiz
Valider = Enter/OK
Mauvaise réponse = Incorrect
Bonne réponse = Correct
Question suivant = Next question
