Find out more about a profession and a field you may never have wondered about before: we’re talking about the maintenance of construction machines! Our guest, Romain, is a mechanical engineer and he’s clearly fond and knowledgeable about his work. You may find this episode a bit more technical (a great challenge for your French skills!). Don’t you worry: as usual, I provide you with a list of specific vocabulary which should really help you!
