Bonjour les amis, c’est Jean-Paul ! Bienvenue ! Today, I introduce to you Act VII and a special treat: a new character! ... I mean, a new student! He is not new to Valérie, however. He has been studying with her as long as Jacques and Michelle have. Why haven’t we introduced him earlier, you might ask? Well, Kevin, that’s his name, is not particularly talkative. In fact, it’s been challenging for Valérie to make him talk during the first lessons. He now seems to be coming out of his shell, so I feel it’s the right time to introduce him to you, dear spectators. Contrary to our other students, Kevin has actually lived in France for a while as an exchange student and has quite a different opinion of France. You’ll find out more about that today.

I hope you already consulted the lessons and the flashcard in preparation for today’s show. I know Kevin has. Vous êtes prêts ? Allons-y ! neither hosts nor alters podcast files. All content © its respective owners.
