Exercise Your Grammar: New Year's Resolution - A2/B1- FRENCH A LA CARTE - Session 2 [Exercise Your Grammar - A2/B1 Session 2]



Would you like to be able to speak about the holidays, make comparisons of your old and new habits, compare your last year and the new one to come? Formulate your resolution and use argumentation with ease?

Exercise Your Grammar Holidays and COVID 19 centers on the current confinement (lockdown) and aims to improve and maintain your mastery of French by focusing on different grammar topics employed in everyday conversation. This is an excellent opportunity to enrich your vocabulary and learn new ways of expressing your thoughts and feelings.
