CBF 2:38 | The pluperfect tense "I had never tasted it"

Coming up in this lesson:

In our long-awaited 38th episode of the course, we continue our radio play featuring David and Christina who are having dinner with their new friends Sophie and Jean-Jacques. This lesson introduces the pluperfect tense and also looks at a few examples of avoir expressions, including avoir l’habitude, avoir besoin de quelque chose and avoir de la chance.


Please note that lesson 38 of Season 2 was originally known as lesson 78 of Coffee Break French. We have renumbered the lessons of each season as lessons 1-40 to make things more simple for our listeners.
