I am re-introducing French back into the blog. There have been several readers who expressed interest in brushing up on their high school or college French, and I will happily comply with their wishes! So, over the days I will add links and info to help you remember what you think you have lost. With the invention of YouTube there are lots of videos to help you practice your pronunciation. (When I post new links, items I will post new items at the top for you to find them easily.)
It will be fun! Sheila

Lawless French. This is a great website for beginners or those wanting to refresh their high school or college French. The owner/writer of the website used to work for About.com, then started her own online French website. I used to refer my college students to Lawless French. This link takes you to the "fun" French page. See her sidebar for other French categories. She knows her stuff!
