Reading Comprehension Tips

When completing reading comprehension questions, it will be helpful to follow these tips:

  • Use a highlighter. Skim the reading passage and highlight words that you know and the cognates (words that are similar in French and English. Chances are, these are the words that will lead to your answer.
  • After highlighting, read the passage carefully. Try to put things into context and don't get flustered by words you don't understand.
  • Look at the questions and start thinking about potential answers. Use common sense and use the French that's been given to you to come up with your answer(s).
