CBF Travel Diaries 2.01 | Paris: un jour, une nuit

Welcome to Season 2 of our Coffee Break French Travel Diaries! This time, we’re following the adventures of Swiss student Charlotte and her friends Lucas and Théo as they take a trip through historic locations in northwestern France. In each episode, teachers Mark and Pierre-Benoît discuss Charlotte’s travel diary and look at interesting vocabulary and expressions for intermediate learners of French. In this first episode, we join the trio on the first leg of their trip as they take the train from Geneva to Paris before setting off on their adventure. Listen out for adjectives of nationality, the conjugation of venir in the present tense, and the conjugation of aller in the future tense. C’est parti ! 

The podcast episodes will be published weekly from 11th February. However, if you would like to binge the entire season then you can access all 10 episodes on the Coffee Break Academy. Our premium version includes lesson notes with additional examples and explanations of the language in each lesson, and a pronunciation practice video to help you improve your speaking.
