This is a really good listening piece about father's day. What happened to the side by side translations from before?

Bonjour Sharwin, Glad you like it! I write articles for two different sites. This Father's Day piece is on the Kwiziq French blog: https://french.kwiziq.com/blog where we use a specially designed Reader that allows you to read the translations one phrase at a time and also find links to related grammar lessons. The articles on https://www.lawlessfrench.com/listening/ are the ones with side-by-side translations. Bonne journée !
