POST
Eric: Listen again to Léa's post.
Yasmine: Départ dans une heure :)
Eric: "Departure in an hour :)"
Yasmine: (SLOW) Départ dans une heure :) (Regular) Départ dans une heure :)
Eric: Let's break this down. First is an expression meaning "departure."
Yasmine: Départ
Eric: French people typically like to go to the south of France, or to other warm places in Europe during their holidays. Most European countries are very close, and don't require a visa for EU citizens, which makes it easier to go anywhere. Listen again- "departure" is...
Yasmine: (SLOW) Départ (REGULAR) Départ
Eric: Then comes the phrase - "in an hour."
Yasmine: dans une heure
Eric: French airlines are usually on time. Delays or cancellations due to strikes can happen, but are not all that common. Listen again- "in an hour" is...
Yasmine: (SLOW) dans une heure (REGULAR) dans une heure
Eric: All together, "Departure in an hour :)"
Yasmine: Départ dans une heure :)
