**La Poste is a bit different from a post office in the United States. En France, vous n'achetez pas seulment les timbres (stamps)! You can use "le téléphone" to make local and long distance calls. You can also get money, somewhat like you do at a bank!

Practice these words one or two more times, then continue on to the next leçon!
