Week-end Simple: Learn French

Seriously, you really can  learn some useful French this weekend!

I have to thank my clever, beautiful sister Darcy for sending me the link to Daphnee, Your Lovely French Teacher.  This is brilliant!

From the site:   "Daphnée, a real Parisian, will introduce you to her city and teach you the day to day urban French, enabling you to deal with every kind of tricky situation.  Whether you're looking for some ready-to-use and fun expressions for your next trip to Paris, or, if you're already familiar with the basics and you want to improve your spoken French, Daphnée is the ideal language guide."

I love the format (see it, hear it, say it in both French and English), and I'm in love with Anne Sophie Franck, the French actress who plays Daphnée.  Sadly, the app is for iPhones and iPads only, but if you visit the site you can watch a few of the lessons and get a sense of this easy and fun way to capture some French.

Bon week-end!

  4. It's like having a French bff in your handbag (or in my case, my back pocket!)
