In the reading section, which is a better strategy: a) read the selection and answer the first question and then look at the second question and tread the selection again, etc., or b) read all the questions first and then go through the selection, reading and finding the answers?
Since the majority of specific questions are asked sequentially according to the selection, it is better to read all the questions, decide which ones are specific questions and go through the selection answering them, and then answer any general questions. This method eliminates having to read the same selection 8-10 times, allows the student to pick up the gist of the selection, and greatly improves the % of correct answers in the minimum of time.
What is the difference between the passé composé tense and the plus-que-parfait?
The passé composé tense starts in the past and includes the present, e.g. "I have eaten there many times". (I ate there in the past and still do.) The plus-que-parfait tense starts in the past and ends in the past, e.g. "I had eaten there many times". (I ate there many times but don't eat there any more.)
