Coming up in this lesson:

Our radio play continues in lesson 35 as David and Christina get to know Jean-Jacques and Sophie a bit more. They talk about their children and pets, and about the food they’re going to order. The conversation includes some examples of the conditional tense, the comparative, and the use of the word en.

Please note that lesson 35 of Season 2 was originally known as lesson 75 of Coffee Break French. We have renumbered the lessons of each season as lessons 1-40 to make things more simple for our listeners.

      Hi Mark,

      I like these dialogues and the way in which you explain the new points of grammar and vocabulary as you break it all down into sections. I find it much more interesting than the more sterile approach to explaining the tenses that you used in earlier episodes from the course.

      However, I’m finding that when I get to the Extra episodes, I haven’t grasped the new grammar sufficiently to be able to translate many of the phrases you test us on. The variations in construction that you ask for sometimes completely throw me.

      I was wondering if you might consider augmenting the pdf materials to include some written exercises to aid mastery of the new grammar?
