Coming up in this lesson:

This episode marks the end of an era! It’s the final lesson of Season 3 of Coffee Break French. We first met Alf, Katie and Veronica over 18 months ago and since then hopefully all our listeners have built their confidence and developed their range of expression in the French language. This final episode provides further opportunities for listeners to practise what they’ve learned through a series of translation challenges and, for premium members, a further dictation exercise.

Please note that lesson 40 of Season 3 was originally known as lesson 340 of Coffee Break French. We have renumbered the lessons of each season as lessons 1-40 to make things more simple for our listeners.

      I have worked through the entire members version and found it excellent.

      Most especially useful has been the last series of dictation. I hope you will continue a 350 series, on much the same basis.

      many thanks

      Hi Mark, Anna,Pierre-Bienot and the team.

      I’m on season 3 and I have to say it is helping me so much, its just the most amazing product. I have lived in Bordeaux for a year and without this Im not sure how I would have coped. My level has gone from OK to a much a higher level. Anyone out there looking for a quality learning tool, look no further as this is the best that you will find !!

      Thanks again
