In this week’s marathon lesson, Hanna teaches us all of the numbers we need to know (from 11-1000) so that we can confidently pay for things and deal with dates and appointments. Not only that, we’ll also learn the words for days of the week and months of the year so don’t miss this important episode!

Chapitre 8 – Vous êtes la fille de Max !

It’s time for the next instalment of La Vérité éclate toujours and this week, there’s a huge rebondissement (plot twist) as we discover the identity of the mystery visiter. Chapter 8 is based on a dialogue between James and new character, Yvette, so we hear some everyday, informal French in this week’s episode. Listen out for examples of the imperative and new vocabulary including words like ahuri and hébété. Who is Yvette and why has she come to see James? Tune in to this week’s episode to find out!

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.
