In this final episode of our first season of En Route avec Coffee Break French, Mark is back in Menton, talking to some of the locals. We’ll find out more about the type of people who visit Menton from the hotel manager, we’ll learn about Menton’s connection to the artist Jean Cocteau, and we’ll discover how the local dialect is being maintained. As usual, this episode is presented in a combination of French and English, and the aim of the episode is to help you learn more about the area and about the French language, while practising your listening skills with engaging content from a variety of speakers with different accents and speeds of delivery.
