Tu connais l'album du nouveau boysband Zaapers??!

Zaapers! est un groupe de cinq garçons qui habitent Marseilleet qui sont en terminale en ce moment. Les garçons se connaissentdepuis six ans et sont de bons amis.

L'album s'appelle " Est-ce que tu me loves?"

L'album sort le 23 avril.

2) Which year are the members of the band in? (1)

3) How long have they all known each other? (1)

4) What happens on 23rd April? (1)


1) "Zaapers!" is a new boyband/group

2) Final year/ sixth year/ S6 - In France, school year groups have different titles : in this case "en terminale" is the final year of secondary school, so we would call it S6.

3) Six years - the key phrase here is "il se connaissent depuis six ans."

4) The album is released/comes out. - The word "sort" is a form of the verb "sortir" which can also mean "to go out".
