Christmas is around the corner, so let’s study the verb accueillir /ak uh yeer/, which means to greet, to welcome. (listen to it being said by different persons in this video at 0:15, 0:27 and at 0:34, and again at 1:55, or on this page under Pronunciation) (BTW chiot /she yoh/ means puppy, chez soi /shay swah/ means at home).

la femme du monde


Elle accueille la cliente


Or preceded by a pronoun:
