      At the beginning of the lesson you asked Anna how her exams went but I can’t catch one of the words. ‘les examen … bien?’ please enlighten me

      • Jim

        I believe it’s the word ‘vont’ – 3rd person plural of ‘aller’, to go. So “Les examen vont bien” , “The exams are going well” – maybe?

      I can imagine loads of poor French people working in hotels having to put up with loads of complaints. Not because there’s necessarily anything wrong, but because loads of people who have listened to Coffee Break French want to put their French into practice.

      I’m finding these a great way of supporting my Duolingo and reminding me of my French. Thanks. I’ve only had to complain once and it was none of these. Il y avaient des puces dans la chambre. Yuk!
