Bonjour !


I just started learning French (found frenchpod101 yesterday). The sentence "Après avoir été diplômé,..." really confused me at first. I thought été meant summer in this case too. Then I googled it. Is it quite advanced grammar for me but I'm looking forward to the time when I will understand it completely.


I really enjoyed the lesson. The words are very useful for these hot days.


A bientôt!


Jitka

The female voice is southern French; the male voice sounds Parisienne. Is one more correct than the other?

My French Canadian relatives have always called a watermelon "melon d'eau." You can't get a more literal translation than that!
