Spoken French: Ou quelque chose comme ça

As an English speaker you’ll sometimes end a sentence with ‘or something.’ When you translate that to French, it becomes ‘ou quelque chose.’ But you don’t want to end a French sentence with ‘ou quelque chose.’ Instead, get into the habit of saying ‘ou quelque chose comme ça.’ Here’s an example in spoken French.

Overflowing with “effectivement” and a challenging “les”

Here’s a little sample from the interview that gets you ready to rent a country cottage. Notice the use of effectivement: 3 times in 18 seconds! And notice… éventuellement (doesn’t mean ‘eventually’) and intéressant (often used to mean, ‘financially advantageous’). Listen until you can hear every word. For example, at the beginning of the 6th French line, do you hear “les” in front of “réserver?” Listen until you hear it! Good luck!
