Dictation exercise B1
"Pote" (not 'pot') is a 'familiar' word, originally only applied to a male friend/mate. In more recent usage, it is also applied to females (and that is clearly accepted here with the reference to 'une pote' in the vocabulary list). 'Mes potes" - 'my friends/mates' - only context will tell you whether 'mes potes' is all male, mixed group, or all females as the singular is always 'pote' and the plural 'potes'.

Agree with Maarten. It's similar in usage to the American "guys". Even though mostly used for a male group, it is now increasingly being applied to mixed and female groups as well.
