Even though it's already the middle of January, everyone in France is still saying Happy New Year. If you're French, you know all about these customs, but could you explain them to someone in English? This video will help you. Who knows what we do in England when it's New Year?
Top Tip! This is a great way to practise your listening: If you are French, this is a topic you already know, which means that watching the video will be much easier. In general, if you have difficulty with listening, listen to things that you already know some information about. If you have to listen to something new, try to guess what it could be about before you start listening. Your brain starts working to predict what it will hear and it makes listening much easier.
