Language level

Intermediate: B1


I keep in touch with one of my old friends.
we are the best friends and we travel with each other from time to time. it’s so interesting to remind the best period of our life sometimes, that could be a nostalgia.
we were at high school together. We remember the other friends and reminds nice memories we feel sympathy as we talk about how our rights were lost at the time of university entrance exam because of the inaccurate arrangements that some people are given special privileges.

Since 2015 I have ever seen my best friend. He went to Bobo-Dioullaso when I was taking my high school diploma exam and I went to Algeria at fall 2015. It is really a long time. I miss him and I hope that we will enjoy our next meeting at summer 2020. So exciting to be with my bestie.

How can I download the audio?

It easy, to start the downloading put the cursor to the audio than right click after that shoose save as.

Hi Isabelle,

I'm afraid the audio files are only accessible on our pages, and are not available for download.

I've just completed the lesson of a student discussion and I have one question: what means "The dream job wasn't really a dream" ? I thought it was a boring job but it is considered to be a perfect job?


A 'dream job' is a job that we imagine to be perfect. Selina is saying that she got her dream job, but then discovered that it wasn't really a dream job. In other words, she didn't really like it, even though she thought that she would.

All the best
