Catrin is doing a literature baccalaureat and she's been a bit concerned about her level of French, not that she isn't fluentor anything, but is her vocabulary extensive and advanced enough. She asked for suggestions of books to read to this end and her teacher said, "Aren't you French ?"
Anyway yesterday she had some work marked and returned and her teacher said, "Really, Catrin, there is nothing in your written style to suggest that you are not French. Nobody would know that you are not French from your written work."
So she's encouraged !
