Bonjour Madame !
A great representative of a Press Conference in French. A small question I raise here -
Je me demandais à quelle spécialité locale j’allais goûter ce jour-là !
Could “demandais” be replaced by “demanderais” to indicate ‘I would wonder’ ?
Merci et À bientôt !

No. In English, "would" has two meanings: something that could/might happen (If I weren't working tomorrow, I would go ...) and something that happened regularly in the past (When I was young, I would go ...) In French you have to use le conditionnel for the first and l'imparfait for the second. In this exercise, we're talking about the past, so it requires l'imparfait.

How good is your French?
