Love Learning Languages offers these quick French vocabulary lists or 10 Mots du Jour every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Each set follows a different theme, today the 10 French vocabulary words are about concerts. C’était quoi ton dernier concert?

Le savais-tu ? Les concerts avaient disparus depuis l’année dernière mais on peut maintenant voir des artistes jouer en direct.  Je ne sais pas si j’irai en voir car de nombreux artistes ont décidé de ne pas voyager.  Par exemple, j’ai très envie de voir Muse en concert, je ne les ai jamais vus jouer, et peut-être viendront-ils en France l’année prochaine. Malheureusement, nous devons juste vivre au jour le jour et il n’est pas certain que ce groupe anglais vienne jouer en France. Croisons les doigts!
