Do you think you've made progress?
« Meine Gastfamilie hat gesagt, dass ich Fortschritte gemacht habe. Durch das tägliche Sprechen der französischen Sprache, nicht nur in der Schule, sondern auch in der Gastfamilie habe ich mich an die Sprache gewöhnt. Weil ich die Tests in meiner zweiten Schulwoche bestanden habe, wurde ich in einen Kurs mit dem nächst höherem Niveau eingeteilt. Was jedoch schade war ist, dass ich diesen Kurs nicht besuchen konnte, da es zu wenige Schüler für diesen Kurs waren. Deswegen habe ich am DELF Kurs (mit demselben Niveau B2 teilgenommen). »
