    a good opportunity

    I always have to chuckle that French doesn’t have a word for “cheap”. Low prices, not expensive. It’s great that that’s the case. When I learned that little tidbit I feel like I understood more about the culture.

    How did you find today’s clip compared to yesterday’s clip? This very short clip is still above 200 words per minute. I definitely feel more comfortable when clips are around 150wpm, but everyone’s level is different.

    Even with these faster clips, Balades continues to be one of the best for A1-A2 learners of French! What do you think? Join us for the next quiz.

    Ceux qui sont en bon état sont vendus à bas prix. C’est une bonne occasion pour en faire des confitures ou des fruits confits.

    Those that are in good condition are sold at low prices. It is a good opportunity to make jams or candied fruits.
