CYF 070 — mercredi 21 avril 2021 — Le matin, au petit-déjeuner
Sometimes, we get very good at understanding a language. It’s the beginning of something new, something very pleasant and rewarding. The ear catches whole sentences, we get good at understanding videos on the Internet, movies in French etc.
But sometimes, we set aside how to improve our speaking of that language. And I don’t think this is a good plan.
So, as in last week’s episode, today the aim is that you train yourself to talk. I have recorded this dialogue between my friend Marilyne and I. She stayed for the night and we meet in the kitchen at breakfast time.
Then, to make things more practical, you will also hear only her lines. With the other part of the dialogue left blank,you will be able to act as if you were me welcoming Marilyne in the kitchen and asking her questions about what she eats for breakfast. The dialogue is rather long, so you will play this game until the lines about the confiture.
In the transcript, I also give you some specific sentences about the breakfast and I encourage you to leave me an audio message about your breakfast.
