French Level 1
    Unité 13: Leçon 1c
    Dans La Maison:
    La Salle de Bains
    To begin our tour of each room, I thought that we should start with the most important room in the house, "La salle de bain" (the bathroom).

    Track 30

    *Note: There are several different names for the "type" of room "en français" that we are discussing in this leçon. Which name you use depends on what kinds of things are actually in the room. Look at the chart below and you'll see what I mean:

Track 31
