February’s quiz is about France

This is our second quiz about France. The topic was chosen by a work experience student who was with us for a week in January. She compiled the questions and answers and also created the interactive quiz you can try from our website home page.

We change the quiz on our website every month. Click on the picture on the home page for the interactive quiz, or go to the quiz resource page to download question sheets and find out the answers.
