For this special episode, I offer to go back and refresh what you’ve learnt over all the time we’ve spent together, for the last 100 weeks! (if you’ve only started to this podcast recently or if it’s your first time today, don’t worry! Welcome!!) I’ve prepared a quiz of 15 questions for you (you can find them in the shownotes along with the number of the episode I refer to for each question and I’ve even included the link to each podcast episode in the shownotes – they follow the same pattern: www.frenchyourway.com.au/podcast(number). I hope you’ll enjoy testing yourself. Most of all, I hope that you’ll realise how much you’ve learnt and – hopefully- improved too!
In order to reward you for your efforts, I invite you to email me your answers to the quiz. I’ll randomly draw the winner of a free 30-minute French session with me on Skype among those of you who will have replied correctly to at least 10 questions.
I will give you the answers to the quiz in episode 202 of this podcast and I’ll also announce the winner! I’ll record episode 202 live on Facebook and I’ll draw the lucky winner then. Follow me on Facebook to be notified about the exact time for the live recording.
Participants to the quiz agree for the free French session to be recorded if they win as it may become a French Your Way Podcast episode.
The deadline to submit your answers is Sunday 16th December at midnight Greenwich time (London time).
Let’s brush up your French together!! Bonne chance! Good luck!
