CBF To Go 2.02 | C’est quoi une journée typique pour toi ? What is a typical day for you?

In this episode of Coffee Break French To Go, Pierre-Benoît asks the question, c’est quoi une journée typique pour toi ? (What is a typical day for you?). You can use the answers of our interviewees to help you answer this question in French.

Access the podcast version below in which Mark is back in the studio helping you understand all the responses.

In the first part of the video, watch the interviews without subtitles and try to understand. In the second part of the video, we’ve provided subtitles in French at the top of the screen. You can choose to turn on subtitles in English using the Subtitles/CC button.

In this second series of Coffee Break French To Go, Pierre-Benoît is in the city of Nantes in France, and in each episode he’ll ask passers-by one question. Of course, that one question will result in many answers, and it’s through these answers that you can practise your French and build your vocabulary.

Coffee Break French To Go will be published every two weeks here on YouTube, and each Season will be filmed in a different part of the French-speaking world.

If you’d prefer not to wait for all 10 lessons of Season 2 to be published, you can access downloadable versions of the videos along with audio versions and lesson notes / transcripts in the Coffee Break Academy.
