    1a) Not too sure what I put but it was pants
    b) grew up in a flat rented by her parents & parents were not rich
    c) Not sure what I put

    2a) So their son an escape the pollution
    Her husband spent his childhood in the countryside and liked the outdoors
    They would never have enough money to pay for a flat in Paris
    2b) Whether she spends her time doing housework and doing things (sure this is wrong)
    Whether she is scared of the traffic on Sunday evening

    3a) They could be noisy since there were no neighbours
    b) Playing in attack, spend hours in garden and go for long bike rides
    c) find themselves around a board game

    And not to sure what I got for Q4.
    For 1a was it not daughter? Could be wrong though

    In the question mentioned, the answer I think was that Michele's husband wanted his daughter to be brought up in the country.
    As I said, I could be wrong however

    1a) to experience precious moments and to have a change of scene
    B) She was born into a family who were not rich enough to own a house and she grew up in an appartment that her parents rented
    C) having a house in the countryside- it is said that you have roots somewhere

    2a) her husband spent his childhood in the countryside and loved life outdoors, he wanted their daughter to get away from the pollution of the big city
    B) 'Was she not scared of the Sunday Evening traffic jams?'
    'Did she not spend her time doing the shopping and housework?'
    C) finding calm away from the stress and something of everyday life

    3a) they could be noisy as there are no neighbours
    B) disappear for hours in the garden , go on long bike rides and playing in the attic
    C) the family would gather again around a board game

    4. > their friends only came in the summer when they were sure of good weather
    >the children didn't come anymore
    > there were lots of big jobs to do in the house and they didn't want to do it themselves (DIY)

    Thanks

    Anyone remember listening answers? See for the question about what she did when she stayed home. Did you say she chatted to her grandpa?

    I think it's because it said "elle les voit", she sees them.
    Ah, that must've been where I got elever from, visualising French does not come naturally to me! And I've chosen AH.

    Yeah, I hate listening started off with 11 too and have slowly improved! That's good, all the best!
    Yea, I know someone who is great at listening but not so good at writing. I guess she just doesn't know her grammar very well. Thank you :-) you too!

    Feeling a lot more confident after reading what everyone else got!
    Totally screwed the listening up (I struggle with anxiety and had a panic attack so wasn't really paying attention to the french..) but hopefully it will be alright!
    For the translation what did everyone write for the last sentence? I think I totally screwed it up!
