We’re heading to north-western France for this episode of the Coffee Break French Magazine to discover more about the Breton language and culture. As ever, you’ll be able to listen to Susie’s text and Mark and Pierre-Benoît are on hand to discuss the text. There’s a question from listener Tomás who wants to know when to use merci de and merci pour, and in our final section we look at two idiomatic expressions which are linked to the word beurre, specifically compter pour du beurre and vouloir le beurre et l’argent du beurre which is the French equivalent of “to have your cake and eat it”.
