  2. This was the review I used to study for my French SL exam in May 2011. It includes most of the grammar points you need to know/ are useful for the exam, such as verb tenses and pronouns. It also has a list of vocabulary and idioms that might be helpful. At the end, the formats for each of the writing genres are explained.
    I also use it as a quick reference guide.

  4. This file is a creative writing essay. Quoting my teacher, this was an excellent example of narrative writing (in fact they'll include it in their textbooks 0.o).
    The topic was to explore and describe cultural stereotypes and the setting was the streets of London. Because of that, there are certain stereotypes in the story one might consider as offensive. However, it is all done in good humor and I have no intention of insulting anyone. I don't even consider those stereotypes as true, I only wanted to have fun with them. The topic itself required the use of a stereotype as it'd be 'easier' to present cultural differences.
