Everybody wonders, especially North-Americans, how come Parisians are slim and live long, provided their lifestyle.
Well, here it is: they are fast and curious. Give them a place to go – they’ll walk. Give them a question to answer – they’ll read.
Now, after you deciphered the secret of Parisian sophistication, here are the 3 steps to the good way of a Dictée correction:
1 – Read - correct based on the information you already know – don’t use any resource.
2 – Listen - listen again, and translate it in your head and make sure that the sentences make sense (lots of homonyms in this one).
3 – Write - click on the video below to correct using my text.
Now, to put it into practice, let’s correct the dictée to see how this technique presents itself in an exercise. Don’t take it lightly: there are tricky words in the text!
