It’s finally here! The episode where you finally get the answers to the 15 questions I asked you in episode 200 of the podcast! I’m so glad you loved the challenge and the opportunity to brush-up the older episodes. Well done to the participants who sent me their answers ; there were actually few mistakes! If you had at least 10/15 answers correct, I entered you in the draw to win a 30-minute French session with me and be featured on an upcoming podcast episode. So, let’s find out what the answers where (check out the shownotes of the episode) and let me announce the winner!
Note: this episode (along with the draw) was recorded live on Facebook and Instagram (hence the occasional side comments with watchers!). Check out my French Your Way Facebook page to watch the video!
