This Revision Bite will give you practice in listening to and understanding French on the topic of getting around.

Useful vocabulary

Most of the vocabulary in this unit is fairly straightforward and easy to remember such as types of transport and leisure activities. What you need to score the highest marks is to understand the opinions about the different transport and express them as advantages ('avantages') and disadvantages ('inconvénients'). You will find this much easier if you understand the vocabulary for expressing opinions and comparing things.

 

à trois reprises - on three occasions
la première fois - the first time
plutôt cher - rather expensive
assez rapide - fairly quick
à l'autre bout de la ville - at the other end of town
c'était plus pratique - it was more convenient
la fois suivante - the next time
à mon avis - in my opinion
la dernière fois - the last time
trop cher - too expensive
valoir la peine - to be worth it
