CBF 3:19 | Idiomatic expressions and the subjunctive

Coming up in this lesson:

We rejoin Veronica this week in our series of episodes coming from our featured learners in the south of France. “Veronica” has been getting to know one of her clients and, as we’ll be finding out this week, she has been invited to a party at this client’s house. In terms of the language covered in this episode, you’ll hear further examples of the subjunctive, and we’ll also be discussing the concept of transitive and intransitive verbs.


Please note that lesson 19 of Season 3 was originally known as lesson 319 of Coffee Break French. We have renumbered the lessons of each season as lessons 1-40 to make things more simple for our listeners.
