Re: Le groupe français 2016 - 2017 Les Voyageurs

I got the audio from a friend who ripped it from source. I'm not sure of the copyright laws. I'm going to email the site admins this weekend when I get some time off. I'll let every one know when I recieve a response. If this stuff was in the public domain already, and it might have been if it was ...

Re: Le groupe français 2016 - 2017 Les Voyageurs

You're right to be concerned. I'm lucky in that I can borrow the physical copies from my friend whenever I may need them. I've emailed the college of middlebury to see if the site restriction was accidental or not. I've also inquired as to the current copyright of the media. Hopefully I recieve ans...

Re: Le groupe français 2016 - 2017 Les Voyageurs

It seems that the French in Action section at the college of middlebury's website is no longer accessible: http://sites.middlebury.edu/french-action Now that the audio files are no longer available at that address I'm looking for new links to access them. Do you guys know of any? The videos themsel...

Re: wwiding's French log

Yeah, if you want to improve your output, then having a solid understanding and feel of the grammar will only help you as a lot of grammar exercises are basically prompts for output. Good luck. Do you have any grammar book or website recomendations? I'll probably try to match DLI drills to the gram...

I don't know what years or style that you consider "classic", but here are some songs from the thirties. I hope that this helps.

À bientôt,

Re: Has anyone finished Rocket French?

Hey Tom, I have finished all three levels of Rocket French a couple of years ago now: Level one (called 'Premium'), Level two (Premium Plus) and Level three (Platinum). I do recommend it, it is well worth it. I believe it is a good program to use following on from Michel Thomas and Pimsleur (I've c...

Has anyone finished Rocket French?

I have been thinking of trying Rocket French. I took a look at the preview lessons this afternoon. The lessons seem quite complete and take a while to complete. Look forward to hearing your reviews.

Re: France vs. Québec

I am very surprised to hear the woman from Québec in the second video say that " Québec is the only bilingual province where they (Canadians) speak French, the rest of Canada is totally English " (starting around the 2:24 mark). There is a considerable amount of French spoken in the neigh...

France vs. Québec

Here's a question: how different is the French in France versus Quebec? I know the pronunciation is different, but are they mutually intelligible? The answer is yes and no. The high register of Quebec French is easily understood by someone from France. This is the French that you will hear on CBC o...
