Cultivate your French - Slow French

CYF 188 — La Frasnée — mercredi 15 novembre 2023

We were in the Jura during the Toussaint holidays, during one week. We love that region that is on the road to the Alps. Its foothills and woods are very nice when you like walking. And there are also lakes and waterfalls.

There is a crêperie in Pont-de-Poitte where we love to have an early dinner or lunch : it’s a warm place and the owner Laurence has a wonderful voice. There is something special about that place. We were having lunch there when we met another family : the grands-parents, their daughter, her husband and their little boy. They were from the region and suggested that we go to La Frasnée where there is a wonderful waterfall. This episode is about us going there.

Do you know that the transcript is a very powerful tool to improve your comprehension? And also to see things that are not obvious when you only listen to the text. Things like : — how the verbs are conjugated : it’s easier then to identify a tense, notice an agreement, etc, — you can see how the words are written and get used to the French spelling, — you can take the time to understand how the sentences are built, — you can take notes, — you can make the link between the text of the episode and a grammar lesson from your textbook. In the notes that come with the transcript, we will focus on how we talk about the rain in French, also I will highlight for you a specific sentence to repeat aloud and tell you why I have chosen this one in particular.

So, to cultivate your French, you could subscribe to the transcript and receive it by email each time an episode is released . The subscription costs 4 euros a month. Each new subscriber receives the 10 latest episodes. www.cultivateyourfrench.com
