"il me reste des croissant du weekend".

If I rewrite to "il lui reste des croissant du weekend", does this mean he have some croissants left from the weekend?

Hi Joan,

Yes, it does...

'croissants' with an -s at the end, otherwise you would say-

Il me reste un croissant du weekend I have one croissant left from the weekend

Hope this helps!

no

"il me reste des croissant du weekend".

If I rewrite to "il lui reste des croissant du weekend", does this mean he have some croissants left from the weekend?

This is super helpful.

I read the written French easily but understanding the spoken is so so so hard for me. This is just at the right level.  I can understand maybe 1/3rd of it.

Hi Elizabeth,

Listening skills ( or understanding the spoken word) is in my experience the hardest part of learning a foreign language but if you are understanding a third you are doing really well, so -

 Bonne continuation! 

I got about 70% first time around, and about another 15% next time around. I wrote it down and then checked my spellings against the written text, then played it a third time to see what I'd missed. The French do run some words together which makes it so important to listen first rather than read the script. If you read first, you expect the pronunciation to be as per the written word. Really good exercise.

is it just me or does the audio say "tard" rather than "retard"?

Hi Sara,

Having listened to the exercise, the reader does say,

en r'tard 

which is how the French would probably pronounce it in every day speech....

is it just me or does the audio say "tard" rather than "retard"?

(Suggestion, not question) I wander if there would be some exercises of this reading comprehension?

It is a good material and I hope it would be counted in my "exercise record", so I can come back to this page to see my improvement throughout the time. When it is listed in my "exercise record", I will feel rewarded.
