    And for dessert…

    One of our recent lessons in class was ordering in a restaurant, and this expression came up. I’m not sure I can use the “comme ____” expression when speaking, but I at least understand it. And I trust you do too after this snippet…

    The waiter might say “comme dessert” or “comme boisson” for taking an order. And here she’s using it too.

    One things for sure, she talks about her mouth watering talking about crepes. Mine is too. And I’m looking for pictures and listening to this snippet on repeat salivating.

    Part of learning the language is embracing the culture. And that’s why I love French. They love their cuisine, even something as simple as a pancake is elevated. And delicious. And craveworthy.

    This is definitely a longer clip, but most of the words that an A1 student will have heard. It’s just about hearing them in quick succession.

    Qui dit crêpes, dit automatiquement Bretagne. En effet, les crêpes sucrées ou les galettes salées sont une spécialité bretonne.

    Et en Bretagne, on trouve des crêperies à tous les coins de rue. Vous pouvez y savourer un menu « tout crêpe »

    Pour commencer, par exemple, une galette avec un œuf au plat, du jambon, une saucisse ou pourquoi pas du fromage ?

    Et comme dessert, une crêpe avec des pommes et de la glace, peut-être même flambée.

    Là, je dois m’arrêter parce que parler de crêpes comme cela me donne faim.

    Who says crepes, automatically says Brittany. Indeed, the sweet pancakes or the salted pancakes are a Breton speciality.

    And in Brittany, you can find crêperies on every street corner. You can enjoy an “all-crepe” menu.

    To start with, for example, a pancake with a fried egg, ham, sausage or why not cheese?

    And for dessert, a crêpe with apples and ice cream, maybe even flambéed.

    Now I have to stop because talking about pancakes like that makes me hungry.
