We’ll work with a range of new expressions, including:

  • autant de
  • supporter mal de
  • être évincé (de)
  • pousser (quelqu'un) à
  • se débarrasser de
  • rendre visite à (quelqu'un)
  • franchir
  • mûrir
  • se faire [+ infinitif]
  • plus [adjectif] que
  • faire des ravages
  • parachever
