Guys I'm really confused now how long my answers have to be for the general conversation ( most of my answers are 35-40 seconds long ). I'm seeing videos say 25 seconds? Is mine too long?

Also does my answers need more than one tense everytime?

i'm literally doing this revision right now! i'm going through my answers and shortening some of them down as I repeated myself too much or put in extra information that isn't needed. I feel like 35-40 seconds is alright, but maybe you could check to see if anything can be shortened a little, so that in the exam you can be asked a variety of different questions to show off your vocab and sentence structure!

for the tenses, not every question requires different tenses, but it would be great if u could add at least a sentence in a different tense here and there. for example in module 4: 'comment vas-tu au college' your answer would most likely be that you travel to school by a certain mode of transport, which is pretty obvious. what you could add on the end, for example, 'i used to travel to school by bus' could get you some more marks, as you're showing how you can implement those tenses into your writing :smile:)
