Need help! French Exam tomorrow!

Hey,

Can anyone here pleasseee help me out?? I have my French final exam tomorrow and I have to prepare about 4 different essays of about 100-120 words each. I have written the first one but am not sure if the grammar is correct. I've put the english translation as well. Respondez vite s'il vous plait!

I go to the University of Auckland. I always take the bus. The university is very far from my house. I have four courses this semester. They are design, french, electronics and programming. Design is very challenging. It is very important for the engineering degree. We must learn to design to be a good engineer. I also have to learn computer programming. Programming takes a lot of time. It is very boring. Electronics is the most difficult course. We have to do a lot of practise to understand. French is difficult but very interesting. It is my favourite course. The teacher is very nice and helpful. His name is Fabrice Alleaume. He speaks in French most of the time in class. He makes us repeat after him. One must study french everyday to get a good grade. One must also do all the exercises and use french often. one must not leave French to the last day before the exam! To do well in French, it is important to know the vocabulary. It is also important to know the spellings. Some words are quite similar to English.

Je vais à l'université d'Auckland. Je prends toujours l'autobus. L'université est très loin de ma maison. J'ai quatre cours ce semestre. Ils sont le dessin, le Français, l’électronique et la programmation. Le dessin est très provocante. Il est très important pour le degré de technologie. Nous devons apprendre à dessin pour être un bon ingénieur. Je dois également apprendre la programmation d'ordinateur. La programmation prend beaucoup de temps. Elle est très ennuyeuse. L'électronique est le cours le plus difficile. Nous devons faire beaucoup de pratique pour comprendre. Le Français est difficile mais très intéressant. C'est mon cours de favori. Le professeur est très gentil et utile. Son nom est Fabrice Alleaume. Il parle en français plus du temps dans la classe. Il nous fait la répétition après lui. On doit étudier journalier français pour obtenir une bonne note. On doit également faire tous exercices et employer le français souvent. on ne doit pas laisser des Français au dernier jour avant l'examen ! Pour faire bien en français, il est important de savoir le vocabulaire. Il est également important de savoir les épellations. Quelques mots sont tout à fait semblables à l'anglais.



Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. You are absolutely right that you must NOT leave something until the last moment! Unfortunately you posted this last night after I went to bed so I hope this is in time for you today.

Since you learn best by correcting your own mistakes, after your essay you will find the Key to Proofreading Symbols. When you reread your essay, look for the symbols AFTER the error (and within parentheses.)
