Rating Your Language Learning Capability for French

How confident are you about learning and using French? This questionnaire describes different kinds of tasks you do in French. For each task, you are going to rate how sure you are that you could complete a language task like the one described. The rating scale goes from 0 to 100. Marking a higher number means you are more sure you could do the activity. Marking a lower number means you are less sure you could do it. Mark how you really feel about your capability to do the task.
