Re: Le groupe français 2016 - 2017 Les Voyageurs

Even when you may not understand a phrase's meaning, you'll be able to correctly repeat it --and, thus, look it up in a dictionary--because the sounds of the terms will be such as you've learned to recognize.

Re: Why Are Europeans Thinner than Americans?

Acting like a Roman usually gets people into trouble. ;)

There is plenty of obesity in Europe as well, but maybe it depends more on where you go?

2017 so far summary.

I'm not sure what I've been doing since Christmas, but here is a short summary of some of the things that I do remember and some of the things that I've been up to lately (that I can remember). French: French French, my pretty, pretty French. Nothing exciting so far, I've re-listened the things I li...
