    in a hurry

    I’m torn on this one. Hearing the speaker on the phone is quite a challenge for me. Words like “mais” before “il y a” and “en tout cas” are especially challenging.

    This one is quite hard, and, granted I’m sleepy taking the quiz, it is especially difficult.

    Is it too difficult? For my level, most likely. I’m using it to pick out the articles and connecting words – the de, des, le’s and les and “mais’s” that I seem to miss. The liaisons in real life add to the challenge, and make words I don’t know especially challenging.

    There’s the “flow state” graph, right? This is probably too challenging to be truly rewarding educationally for me, but I still want it on here as everyone’s level is so different. Of course, you can always turn to a kids song on site if you need a break and feel like you understand French. Maybe that will be my next stop!

    I guess it’s because I’m in a hurry to understand everything. I need to take more baby steps, perhaps.

    This podcast is a bit of older news, but still an interesting listen. Please note, the opinions expressed in this voice essay are not mine, I just want to use it for learning purposes.

    Nos gouvernements sont coupables de détourner leurs regards de ces drames et de ne s’en soucier, à la hâte, comme si c’était nouveau, que lors d’hécatombes particulièrement atroces mais il y a une raison à cela et cette raison c’est nous, les citoyens européens, qui ne voulons plus, très majoritairement en tout cas, de nouveaux immigrés dans nos pays.

    Our governments are guilty of turning their eyes away from these tragedies and of worrying about them, in a hurry, as if it were new, only during particularly atrocious massacres, but there is a reason for this and that reason is we, the European citizens, who no longer want new immigrants in our countries, at least by a large majority.
