Assimil French: Lesson 1

Assimil French Without Toil / Assimil French With Ease

These are the vocabulary and translation exercises for “Assimil French Without Toil” (1940 Edition) that I found available for free on the website of the University of Waterloo Computer Science Club website: https://csclub.uwaterloo.ca/~rfburger/language/

(Unfortunately this link doesn’t seem to work sometimes. However, the Assimil Method booklets from 1940 and 1950 can be found online. Just google it).

The idea is to read the booklet by Assimil and then come back here and try to do the gap filling exercises.
