SLOW DIALOGUE

TRANSLATION
At the bakery shop :
- Sir ?
- Four croissants, please.
- Here they are.
- Pardon me. Six croissants, please.
- There. Seven euros.
- And a baguette.
- Here it is. Eight euros.
- Thank you. Goodbye.
N’est-ce pas is not very popular in french. Nothing compared to isn’t it, aren’t you, have you… You want to use this instead : Vous vous appelez Jean, c’est ça ?
Monsieur (M.) (masc.) : Mister (Mr), sir.
Croissant (masc.) : croissant.
Voici : here, here it is.
Pardon : pardon, pardon me.
Baguette, baguette de pain (fém.) : baguette.
Pain (masc.) : bread.
Au revoir : good bye.

Bakeries are very important in France. You can find a great amount of them in a small town, and sometimes two or three in the same little street. You can buy there different sorts of bread, the most important is of course what we call la baguette. It’s a bread shaped in a long and thin stick. Some people think it’s typically French… We can also find viennese pastries, such as croissants or pains au chocolat (it tastes like croissants but with a stick of chocolate inside and it’s in a shape of a square. It’s really good !)
Translate in English :
1. Cinq croissants, s’il vous plait.
2. Six baguettes et neuf croissants.
3. Voici. Au revoir, monsieur.

Translate in French :
1. Hello ! One, two, three, four, five children.
2. Six coffees and seven teas.
3. Eight boys and nine girls.


What about you ? Do you have baguettes and croissants in your country ?
Et vous ? Vous avez des baguettes de pain et des croissants dans votre pays ?
