Today’s words and phrases:

je voudrais… – “I would like…”
je prends… – “I’ll have…” / “I’ll take…” (literally, “I take”)
une eau minérale – “a mineral water”

You can ask for une eau minérale plate for still water, and une eau minérale gazeuse for a sparkling water. Remember that by following @learnfrench on Twitter, you can learn French in 140-character lessons linked to these audio programmes.
