Chapitre 4 – James se sentit pris de panique

It’s time for the next instalment of our crime novel, La Vérité éclate toujours, for advanced learners of French. Following a stressful interrogation from the Police, James returns to his hotel in turmoil, wondering whether to start investigating what has happened to Max. Is his friend not the person he thought he was? What might he found out about Max? He has so many questions but none of the answers – il se sentit pris de panique ! In Chapter 4, we meet some more verbs in the past historic and we hear a form of the phrase: tirer quelque chose.

Welcome to our new podcast for advanced French learners. In each episode of the story, published fortnightly, we’ll be following a chapter of La Vérité éclate toujours, specially written to help you build your knowledge of French and extend your range of expression. In the episodes, teacher Mark and narrator Pierre-Benoît will discuss the story, helping you to improve your listening skills.

There’s also an online course version of La Vérité éclate toujours which provides access to a range of additional materials including the text of each chapter, annotated notes, language study podcasts, vocabulary lists, video versions of each episode and our atelier linguistique which helps you to take the language you’ve covered in each chapter further. This course is available on the Coffee Break Academy.
