In fact, a good way to learn is focusing specifically on common French mistakes, so that you can avoid them in the future. With that in mind, we designed a quiz that includes some of the most frequent errors French learners make.

We also give you a brief explanation of each error, so you’re not left scratching your head as to what makes one answer wrong and another correct.
