Listening tips:

Notice the related words at the bottom of the text: réaliser and irréalisable.

  • 2nd French line: do you hear the Toulouse accent on the word aérien? Sounds like aérienG. You hear a sort of a G sound.
  • 3rd line of French: you hear the T pronounced in s’est imaginé. Sounds like setimaginé.
  • 6th line of French: you don’t hear ce projet but rather s’projet.
  • Last line of French: instead of il ne me reste, you hear il me reste. (That is why the [ne] is in brackets.)
  • Last line of French you don’t hear à le réaliser but rather alréaliser. Agree?
