This episode has one double entendre explained in context (possibly explicit). Learn language to shop at the bakery in French.
We’ll talk about the bakery, a place to get the best fast French food such as sandwiches, baguettes, candies, cakes, Christmas cakes, pizzas, croissants, brioche (bread with butter and sugar that is very sweet).
(02:30) Role playing a conversation at the bakery.
(03:20) Breakdown of the conversation. Hello, ma’am. Can I help you, please? (How to say it in a polite way and to a friend you know.) But what would you like?
(04:20) Choices given: classic French bread. Another choice is about half the size of a baguette, but in a different context, the word may mean “bastard.” Another choice is country bread, which uses a different flour.
(05:38) Janina asks for a baguette. “Good, and with that?” I would like two brioche and two croissant. “Will that be all?” Two-fifty. Do you have change for 100 euros?
(06:25) “No, I don’t. You can go to the B&P (big bank) next door.” All right, then. I don’t have enough money. I’ll leave the brioche and the croissants. “Do as you wish.” Goodbye.
(07:15) Here are some important phrases: What would you like? (Not very polite.) But what would you like? Please. Good, and what else? I would like… Will that be all?
(08:25) Do you have change for…? Oh no! You can go. Next door. All right then. I don’t have enough. I don’t have enough money. I will leave. I’ll leave the brioche. I’ll leave the brioche and the croissant. Do as you want.
(09:50) Make yourself at home. Goodbye.
(10:15) Final thoughts about the bakery: people are busy, it’s like a religion, and go in the morning when the bread is warm and straight out of the oven.
