  1. Those are very useful Courtney.
    My knowledge of verbs is pretty good, my tenses are improving, as is my French vocabulary. But it’s putting it together in a coherent sentence that I struggle with because I know that a literal translation won’t work in most scenarios.
    We have to converse regularly with French peopl about critical stuff! it’s not a case of just using the language on holiday, & I worry about saying something inappropriate or even offensive!
