Reading Practice: Home Delivery… by drone!


First, how do you say “home delivery” in French? La livraison à domicile /lee vrez own ah dough me seal/.

Faites vous la livraison à domicile?
/fett voo lah lee vrez own ah dough me seal/ 
(Do you do home delivery?)

livraison à domicile

But from now on, you might have to get used to saying “drone delivery” instead…

livraison par drone
/lee vrez own par drone/
