    I can’t stand…

    It’s been a while. I’ve been out of sorts and letting too many things get in the way of my French studies. Don’t we all do that? I can’t stand when I find myself saying “I’m busy”, but then here I’ve been. Saying just this that.

    Enough of being too busy. It’s time to focus on my goals, and my goals are to master French. I still think this is a way to do it. Sure, I need speaking practice along side all this listening, but maybe there’s a way to do that in the future.

    For now, I’m going to restart these posts, these “lessons”, these mini quizzes. I hope to finish this episode of Balades and continue forward. As I’ve always said, Balades remains (for me) an entry level podcast. It’s difficult enough given vocab/topics, however the speed remains accessible. And this post is no exception.

    This clip is the exact half way point for this episode, there will be 54 clips in total.

    If you’re just joining us as a beginner, I recommend you start with the first episode of Balades. Follow along daily for new clips.

    How did you find today’s clip compared to yesterday’s clip? I tend to be most comfortable when the clip is around 150wpm. I love Balades for my current level, around A1 (hopefully progressing to A2). Hopefully you’re enjoying these clips too. Even when there’s a fast clip, it’s still manageable. The right amount of challenge. What do you think? Join us for the next quiz.

    How are you finding these shorter snippets? I’m open to any and all feedback, as always. Let me know.

    « Ah, qu’est-ce qu’il peut faire chaud, cet été. Je ne supporte plus cette chaleur. J’ai dit à mon mari que l’année prochaine, je veux passer l’été en Bretagne. »

    “Ah, how hot it can get this summer. I can’t stand this heat anymore. I told my husband that next year I want to spend the summer in Brittany.”
