How to Prepare for the Bright French Test?

If you don’t pass the test the first time, you have to wait 30 days to try again. It might become a problem if your school is waiting for your results before accepting you, or if you’re in an immigration process. So, it might be best to prepare for your test beforehand!

Be sure to plan your revisions to cover both the written and oral parts. Some people think that they are better at the written part and decide to only study for the oral part (or vice versa). Don’t overlook one part of the Bright French test for the other one.

To prepare yourself for the reading and writing comprehension questions, we recommend that you use workbooks, read newspaper articles and books, write some fictional texts or emails, do some grammar exercises, etc. It’s best to use various learning resources, since it will allow you to learn different things and view the French language differently.

For oral comprehension, you should train your ear to recognize French (sometimes, you might hear words that you do not recognize, even though you know them in writing). Watch some French TV shows, listen to podcasts and audiobooks, speak with French people, etc.
