fiche de lecture


New Member

I want to know what is the English equivalent of the French expression "fiche de lecture" ? This expression is used when, in university researches, we read a book and want to make a "compte rendu " of it.

Thanks in advance

  • How would one translate the term fiche de lecture in english?

    Googling gives me the following possible translations:

    Reading chart
    Reading list
    Readers notes

    Synopsis seems to be the best choice (when I consider the situation where a professor gives a student, an article to read, and asks him to do a fiche de lecture). Can anybody please confirm, is this the right term that one uses in schools in alglophone countries ...
