Chapitre 11 – Ils avaient les nerfs à fleur de peau

We have reached the first chapter in Part 2 of our drama, La Vérité éclate toujoursfor advanced learners of French. So far, in Part 1, we have learned that James is on a mission to find out what happened to his best friend Max who is in a critical condition in hospital. Upon meeting Max’s daughter Yvette, he plucks up the courage to uncover what is hidden in the USB stick given to him by Max before he was taken to hospital. As we embark on the second part of the story, we’re introduced to another new character, Claire Martin. Who is Claire and why has she turned up at James’ hotel in Paris? Will she be able to help him investigate what happened to Max? Listen to the episode to find out! Don’t forget to pay close attention to the language used along the way, in particular, examples of the pluperfect tense and preceding direct objects.

Welcome to Part 2 of 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.
