    • C.

      Ca va?

    • D.

      Comment allez-vous?

    Correct Answer

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Mrs.

    • A.

      Mademoiselle

    • B.

      Madame

    • C.

      Monsieur

    Correct Answer
    B. Madame
    Explanation
    The given options are honorific titles used to address women and men in French. "Madame" is the correct answer because it is used to address a married or older woman in a formal or polite manner. "Mrs." is the English equivalent of "Madame". "Mademoiselle" is used to address an unmarried woman or a young girl, "Monsieur" is used to address a man.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Which answer is correct?

    • A.

      Pas terrible.

    • B.

      Pas mal.

    • C.

      Très bien.

    Correct Answer
    C. Très bien.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Très bien" because it translates to "Very good" in English. The other options, "Pas terrible" and "Pas mal," both mean "Not bad" or "Not terrible," which are not as positive as "Very good." Therefore, "Très bien" is the correct answer as it indicates a high level of satisfaction or excellence.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Which expression is the OPPOSITE of this?

    • A.

      Pas mal.

    • B.

      Pas terrible.

    • C.

      Ca va.

    Correct Answer
    B. Pas terrible.
    Explanation
    The given expressions are French phrases that convey different levels of satisfaction or approval. "Pas mal" means "not bad," indicating a moderate level of satisfaction. "Ca va" means "it's going," indicating an average or neutral sentiment. On the other hand, "pas terrible" means "not great," indicating a negative or unsatisfactory sentiment. Therefore, "pas terrible" is the opposite of "pas mal" in terms of expressing satisfaction or approval.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    With whom is it appropriate to use "tu"?

    • A.

      An adult

    • B.

      A friend

    • C.

      A group of friends

    Correct Answer
    B. A friend
    Explanation
    Using "tu" is appropriate when addressing a friend. This is because "tu" is the informal form of "you" in many languages, including French, Spanish, and Italian. It is a more casual and familiar way of speaking, which is suitable when talking to someone you have a close relationship with, such as a friend. It is important to note that using "tu" with someone you are not familiar with or in a formal setting may be considered disrespectful or inappropriate.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    How would you appropriately greet Mrs. Brown?

    • A.

      Salut!

    • B.

      Tchao!

    • C.

      Bonjour!

    Correct Answer
    C. Bonjour!
    Explanation
    Bonjour is the appropriate greeting to use when addressing someone formally, especially when using the title "Mrs." It is a polite and respectful way to greet someone in French. Salut is more informal and is typically used among friends or acquaintances, while Tchao is even more informal and is often used as a casual goodbye. Therefore, Bonjour is the correct answer for greeting Mrs. Brown in a respectful manner.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    It's morning and you just saw your friend but you'll be seeing her again in a few minutes.  Which response would be most appropriate.

      A demain.

    • B.

      A tout à l'heure.

    • C.

      Au revoir.

    • D.

      A bientôt.

    Correct Answer
    D. A bientôt.
    Explanation
    The most appropriate response in this situation would be "A bientôt." This phrase translates to "See you soon" in English, indicating that you will be seeing your friend again in a short while. It conveys a sense of anticipation and suggests that the separation will be brief.

    Rate this question:

  • 8.

    • A.

      They both mean the same thing.

    • B.

      The first means I'm well and the second means I'm very well.

    • C.

      The first means I'm well and the second means I'm not well.

    • D.

      They are opposites.

    Correct Answer
    B. The first means I'm well and the second means I'm very well.
    Explanation
    The phrase "ça va bien" translates to "I'm well" in English, indicating a general sense of well-being. On the other hand, "ça va très bien" translates to "I'm very well," emphasizing a higher degree of wellness or satisfaction. Therefore, the correct answer is that the first phrase means "I'm well" and the second phrase means "I'm very well."

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Miss

    • A.

      Mlle.

    • B.

      Madame

    • C.

      M.

    Correct Answer
    A. Mlle.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Mlle." which is the abbreviation for "Mademoiselle" in French. "Mademoiselle" is used to address an unmarried woman or a young lady. "Miss" is the English equivalent, while "Madame" is used to address a married woman or a lady of higher social status. "M." is the abbreviation for "Monsieur" which is used to address a man. Therefore, "Mlle." is the correct answer in this case.

    Rate this question:

    Comment _______ va?

    Correct Answer
    ça

    The question is asking for the correct French word to complete the sentence "Comment _______ va?" The correct answer is "ça," which means "it" or "that" in English. This word is used to refer to a situation or something previously mentioned.

    Rate this question:

    A tout ____ l'heure.

    Correct Answer
    à

    The correct answer is "à". In French, "à" is used to indicate the time when you will see or meet someone again. So, the phrase "à tout à l'heure" means "see you later" or "see you soon".

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Pas _____ (not so bad).

  • 13. 

    Comme _____ comme ça.

    Correct Answer

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    When speaking to a pet, you can use "tu".

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    When speaking to a pet, it is common to use "tu" because pets are often considered part of the family and are addressed with familiar language. This is similar to how we use "tu" when speaking to close friends or family members.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    When speaking to someone with a title (le Président), you must use "vous".

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    When speaking to someone with a title such as "le Président," it is considered polite and respectful to use the formal form of address, which is "vous" in French. This shows deference and acknowledges their position of authority. Using the informal form of address, which is "tu," would be considered disrespectful in this context. Therefore, the correct answer is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 16.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    "Pas terrible." is a negative comment. In French, "pas terrible" translates to "not great" or "not good." Therefore, it implies that something is not satisfactory or not up to expectations.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    Super! Fantastique! Très bien! Bien!These are all positive comments.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    How would you address this person?

    • A.

      Monsieur

    • B.

      Salut

    • C.

      Comment t'appelles-tu?

    Correct Answer
    A. Monsieur
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Monsieur" because it is the appropriate way to address a person in a formal setting or when showing respect. "Salut" is a more informal greeting used among friends, while "Comment t'appelles-tu?" means "What is your name?" and is not a form of address. Therefore, "Monsieur" is the most suitable option for addressing the person in a respectful manner.

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    "Comment t'appelles-tu?" and "Tu t'appelles comment?" ask two different questions.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    "Comment t'appelles-tu?" and "Tu t'appelles comment?" both mean "What is your name?" in English. They are just two different ways of asking the same question in French. The word order is different, but the meaning remains the same. Therefore, the statement that they ask two different questions is incorrect.
