Yes! Practice for perfection! The average written assignment is not lengthly. Reinforcement of the language is essential, so studying, using the language outside of class and doing the written assignments are expected on a nightly basis. Say outloud what you are writing. This will help prepare you for the listening comprehension sections on quests and tests.Back to Top
