7/8 LFI RESOURCES
Google translate is not an effective translating resource for beginner language learners. More often than not, the site will translate sentences literally and not in the context students want them. As well, the site often “fixes” grammatical errors and will translate the sentence using verb tenses students have not learned yet…a dead give away. Please use Wordreference instead.
ASSOCIATION DES FRANCOPHONES DES KOOTENAYS-OUEST
Here is your chance to listen to and participate in francophone events in our community!
