Talking France

France fears far-right violence and should the French ditch their crazy numbers?

Listen on

Episode notes

Just how concerned should we be in France over a spike in far right violence after the murder of a young man in a rural village? What are the new international flight and train routes opening in France next year and just how did the French end up with their crazy number system. Should they change it to help us language learners?

These are just three of the many questions we will try to answer in this new episode of Talking France.
