Somehow it hadn't really occurred to me that there aren't French immersion schools in the U.S.! Here in Canada they're everywhere. I could have gone to one, but my parents asked me if I wanted to when I was 5 and I said no (because I imagined a terrifying experience where everyone spoke French but me, lol). I had perhaps a little too much say in big decisions, for a 5 year old. :lol:

Hi all,

I just came across this site which provides lyrics for French songs. It also provides translations of the song into English as well as other languages. Here is a link to one of my favourite singers, Zaz (Isabelle Geffroy). I hope that you enjoy it. I do.

Thanks, Tom. My favorite French singer remains Céline Dion, some of whose French tunes can be found on that same site.

I was reminded today about the Eurovision Song Contest.

The french entry seems to have been chosen in a programme called 'Destination Eurovision', a playlist of the (french) entries is available on YouTube.

Youtube rather rudely insists that this playlist does not exist. :(

Looks like they've deleted videos of everyone but the winner. The account of the TV show is Destination Eurovision.

Wikipedia have a list of all the entries.
