    To summarize

    I really like faux amis in French. I mean, I don’t like them, as I always seem to trip over them. However, it is a mind bending experience when you’re like “oh wait, that’s not journey” or … I know there are many more but I’m not thinking of them.

    Here’s another one, where on first hearing/reading the transcript I think “resume” in English, even though that can’t logically be there.

    This summary, while far slower than other clips in this series, it is still quite fast. While a summary, it should be a “simpler” clip, but continues to whip through the previously covered content in a quick pace. Here’s yesterday’s quiz.
