Difficult exercise

I’m sure the speed was intentional, but it was a difficult listen! I still can’t catch the de in "prendre de tes nouvelles" (tho knew it ought to be there) nor the dès in the last sentence.

Hi Anne,

I have listened to the exercise and although it is a bit fast all the words are there.

Maybe other users could listen to it and let us know whether they agree with you?

I found the ‘pitch’ of voice the most difficult part to deal with !

Otherwise it sounded quick, but not extreme, and I could detect the individual words and sounds (not always on a single play through, although I understood the message well at first listening).

Thank you, Maarten,

The pitch did make me smile, probably Aurélie using her best am-dram talents, but I didn't think it impinged comprehension.

Students get used to a particular voice but in real life, people speak in various fashions.

Bonne Continuation !

Cécile, 

Pour être honnête, on a une amie française (en France) qui parle presque exactement de la même manière !
