i am having difficulty not looking at the answers because i am finding it hard, can some one tell me how to overcome the erg to cheat. HELP
The point is that if you don't know the answer, you look at the word to help you remember. You're supposed to "cheat."
My plan to become fluent in French is to look up words in dictionaries and translators, and I am going to cheat cheat cheat and cheat more until I succeed. If you have never seen the word before, why should you know it? Even if you have, forgetting happens to everyone... if you're insistent you can pause and think, or guess based on the sentence, but I would say don't feel ashamed in cheating.
Keep practicing, it's fine if you look at the answer but try to remember it so next time you wont have to
