    I imagine you have nothing against

    Okay, jumping back to the Balades podcast. It feels a little more my speed. It’s challenging because of pace, vocab, content, but it still feels accessible. Unlike the some of the clips in the previous series: from Choses a Savoir & Géopolitique. That doesn’t make it easy, though!

    I’m trying something new on this series – all the clips will be less than 40 words (for the most part). And that means they’ll be quick. That’s good for listening exercises and keeping the time quick.

    If you are looking for something longer and more intensive, you can consider diving into our archived quizzes (sign up required). For now, this is going to make things a bit more manageable, for me posting and for my learning. I hope you enjoy.

    I’m open to any and all feedback, as always. Let me know.

    Même si cette année l’hiver n’est pas bien froid, j’imagine que vous n’avez rien contre une petite balade dans le sud de la France où il fait un peu plus doux qu’ici.

    Even if this year the winter is not very cold, I imagine that you have nothing against a little walk in the south of France where the weather is a little milder than here.
