Grade 7 Exam Study Guide

Your examination on Thursday April 26 will cover several aspects of our current unit “Amusons-nous!” It will include a reading-comprehension component and a writing component.

In order to fully prepare yourselves, you are advised to practice on the material that we have already covered and you also need to pay careful attention during the lessons leading up to the exam. Giving high priority to your studies during this crucial time is important if you are to be successful in your French exam.

What you need to review:

  • The vocabulary specific to leisure activities
  • The vocabulary needed to describe places
  • Expressions used to ask about future plans and to tell what you are going to do
  • The conjugation of the verb ALLER and how to say that you are going to do something in the future
  • How to say what you are going to do on a specific day of the week as opposed to an activity done regularly on a certain day of the week
  • Contractions with the preposition “à”

How you can practice:
Go to your online textbook, “Chapitre 6”, “1ère Etape”, “Book Pages” and do the following exercises:

  • 10 and 11 on pages 174-175
  • 13 on page 176
  • 14 on page 177
  • “Grammaire supplémentaire” pages 190-191

You will be able to test yourselves with the interactive exercises entitled “Jeu” that appear in sections 3, 4, 5 and 6 of 1ère Etape. If you would like to check your answers to the other exercises mentioned previously, let me know during class and we can set aside some time before Thursday 26 when you can check them with me.

In order to prepare for your reading comprehension component, you are encouraged to read the “Lisons” section of your textbook on pages 188-189 and try to answer the questions online. For copyright reasons, the text itself is only available in print format. I will make printouts for those students who do not have a hard copy of the textbook.

Bonne révision et bonne chance!
