    Grammaire - dernier et prochain

    Grammaire - dernier et prochain

    In this episode, Gaelle explains why you can sometimes say “la semaine prochaine” or “la prochaine semaine”. The adjectives “prochain” and “dernier” are trickier than others as they can be placed either before or after the noun and it will change their meaning. So if this subtlety is unclear to you, come and listen!

Great tool for learning French

I am a beginner/intermediate French speaker, taking lessons in a small group. I cannot keep up with normal-paced French podcasts, but I can understand this one. And the topics are very interesting. I straight-up enjoy it!

Love it!

This is perfect for me! The subjects are interesting and the speed is ideal. I live in a community where very few are speaking french so to be able to listen to an intermediate level, compelling podcast is lovely.

Perfect

I find this to be incredibly helpful! Gaele speaks French at just the right tone and speed to allow me to comprehend what she is saying. I’ve been listening for the last few months and already I understand more and more every time I listen.
