Coming up in this lesson:

We knew you’d be desperate to find out how Katie got on at the Cannes Film Festival with Jérôme, so we’re sticking with Katie’s diary entries this week. In this episode you’ll hear a full account of her evening in Cannes with Jérôme and his parents, and you’ll also hear how things have developed between Katie and Jérôme… In terms of the language covered in this episode, we’ll be taking a look at further examples of direct and indirect object pronouns, more examples of the subjunctive, and lots more.

Please note that lesson 18 of Season 3 was originally known as lesson 318 of Coffee Break French. We have renumbered the lessons of each season as lessons 1-40 to make things more simple for our listeners.

      Just downloaded this and looking forward to tackling it tomorrow. I have a request though: can you put the transcript on the Text Only versions, too, please? It’s on some of them but I can’t get it to work on all of them and, when I’ve done the lesson a few times, I like to clear out my ipod, leaving the Text Only versions on there to test myself later. The transcript then becomes really useful. Thanks!

        You can always cut and paste the pdf files from the lesson notes, creating a new transcript only file. Assuming you are a paid-member of course…
