Level B2 - Name that French Tense & Translate - 200 Practice Cards

Name That Tense is an activity for advanced learners of French to practice verb tenses. These 200 practice cards provide a challenging review. You can use these cards on a few different levels.

STEP 1 - Begin by using the cards written in French, and simply identify and name the tenses you read without translating.

STEP 2 - CHALLENGE: Use the cards written in English, name the French tense that needs to be used, then translate the sentences to French.

These practice cards provide an excellent opportunity to review why each tense was chosen for a particular sentence. Translations are included. It can be very interesting to compare French and English sentence structure. There are many similarities, and many big differences as well. That's when it's time to pay close attention!

The first 50 cards in each set use these tenses: le présent, l'imparfait, le futur simple, le passé composé, le conditionnel, le plus-que-parfait et le conditionnel passé.

The second 50 cards in each set use all of the tenses mentioned above, and also include cards using: le futur antérieur, le subjonctif, le subjonctif passé, l'impératif, et le passé récent, and many si clauses are included.
