      Hi Mark and Anna

      I feel that I’ve learnt a lot from these audios, thanks.

      Is it appropriate to say “nous voudrions nous promener sur la plage le soirs” to mean, “we used to walk on the beach in the evening, instead of “nous nous promenions sur la plage le soirs”?

      Hi. Brilliant podcast I have had to listen about 5 times for it all to since in. I have a question though. I always used chaque jour for everyday rather than tout les jours. Is this a problem / incorrect? Thanks
