You can answer the questions in your head, or have some paper to jot them down on.

The important thing is to try SAYING the new words OUT LOUD.

TASK 5: ÉCRIVEZ 

Write a full answer to the question Où habites-tu?

 

Here is an example to adapt:

    J'habite dans un appartement en ville à Bristol, avec ma famille.

 

You could extend your answer by adding adjectives and an opinion, like this:

 

     J'habite dans un petit appartement en ville à Bristol avec ma famille. J'aime mon appartement parce que c'est confortable!

 

You could look up other dwellings, adjectives or people on https://www.wordreference.com/... but DON'T look up whole sentences.

 

Please send me your work from today on the Teams assignment, as a photo or document.
