Writing in French! Mon auto-portrait!

The homework for the weekend is to write a composition in French about yourself (faire un autoportrait). Your composition should be typed (double-spaced), in 3 paragraphs (minimum, 5 maximum), total length about a page to a page and a half long.

In the first paragraph introduce yourself (Je me présente..), and give some basic information (describe yourself), where you live, add on details on the types of clothing your prefer to wear etc…

In the second paragraph talk about your classes. Continue on and mention your living situation, and briefly describe your room. Add on details that make it more individual.

In the third paragraph talk about your likes and dislikes, hobbies, and other things you would like to express about yourself. You can add a conclusion, perhaps ending with a question for the reader. You are always encouraged to be creative, however, try to stay within the bounds of the language you have learned thus far : ) Don’t be overly ambitious in terms of verbal tenses and complicated structures. Don’t use Google translate for this assignment (quelle horreur!). DO use everthing–the vocab, verbs, and structures we have learned thus far! DUE MONDAY, typed. Late assignments will be penalized!
