Me and my accomplishments.
You’re hanging with your new Québécois friends when suddenly, you realize that you’re following an animated conversation en français! You’re laughing at their jokes and you get their expressions, like ‘voyons donc’ and ‘ça s’peut-tu’ and ‘niaise pas avec la puck’! You’re even responding with more spontaneity than ever before! You’re making great progress in French and you’re feeling more and more at ease using, thinking and living in French. Bravo! This is the bridge to your last conversation course, so lâche pas!
