  • Read it out loud
  • Then Listen: to check your reading skills and pronunciation.

You will then answer some questions in the next step. (the text will appear again)

Tips for reading:

  • First read the whole text once to get the main idea.
  • Then, check words meaning with the online dictionary WordReference when you are unsure.

George est britannique, il est marié et a deux enfants. Il est né à Manchester, mais il habite dans le nord de Londres, dans le quartier de Highgate. Il travaille à King’s College London depuis 8 ans. Il est professeur de français pour le département du Modern Language Centre : il donne des cours de français et développe des cours de français en ligne. Il aime son travail et ses collègues. L’atmosphère est bonne et ses étudiants sont curieux, motivés et intéressants. George aime beaucoup Londres parce que c’est une ville dynamique et multiculturelle ; il y a aussi des musées, des monuments et des music-halls. Le week-end, George aime lire et aller au restaurant avec sa famille.

C’est un Londonien heureux !
