Testimonial

Haejin

Aujourd’hui j’ai passé environ 40 min pour faire la dictée et les exercices de vocabulaire et de grammaire. J’aime bien apprendre des mots idiomatiques et la grammaire tout en lisant Marc Levy. De plus, cette fois, je n’ai pas fait beaucoup d’erreurs, ou au moins pas autant que d’habitude ! Il faut d’ailleurs pratiquer d’une façon persistente quelle que soit la méthode que tu utilises. J’aime bien cette grille d’analyse pour la dictée. Merci toujours de partager tes astuces et conseils très utiles !
