Alice's French Lesson - A Podcast
I am packing for a trip to Paris and I leave tonight. I studied French in high school, but since I didn’t have anyone to speak with, I’ve lost most of what I once knew. So I’ve been honing my French skills the Alice way. I picked up some cool French songs courtesy of some great blogs, (the links to which I’ve included below in case you want to check them out). I downloaded them and then I went online and looked for the “paroles,” which I found out is French for “lyrics.” I plan to listen to them and learn all the lyrics on the plane. I just hope someone asks me something that I can answer with “Les filles c’est fait pour faire l’amour.”
So if you’ve ever wanted to learn French, or just enjoy singing in a language you barely understand, join me in singing along!
