Have you gone to France and immersed yourself in the culture, language and lifestyle? That would show me you’re interested!

I have not been to France 😭 at all I don’t know what else to add, do you have any ideas?
Language podcasts, reading the news in French, reading books (including children’s books) in French, pen pals, watching films and series in French, helping younger students in French lessons. If you’ve done any of these, I think they’d show interest in the language outside of school
Thanks so much!

Anxious turtle covered it well!

Perhaps learning about the culture/ reading classic French books. Maybe visiting museums related to France?
books you've read, movies you've seen, any translation or essay writing competitions you've entered, trips to a French country, tutoring you've done, etc
