Coffee Break French

CBF 4:19 | Idiomatic ways to say how long you have been doing something

Aug. 10, 2014

In this episode of Coffee Break French, Gabrielle is writing to Matthieu. There are some great expressions in this lesson’s text, including a few idiomatic ways of saying how long you’ve been doing something, how to talk about working hard – or “like a dog”, and we even manage to include some Disney references and a bit of Edith Piaf! As usual Mark and Pierre-Benoît are on hand to discuss the idiomatic expressions and grammar points.
