Many millions of people around the world want to improve their French. Are you one of them? You may have tried one of those Learn-French-in-a-week CD ROMS, or a boring grammar course, or perhaps a mind-numbing self-study course? Are you looking for something that is a joy to use? Something that will entertain you while you learn? Learn some French without even realising it? Something that over fifteen thousand people have downloaded already – and loved? Look no further than Learn French With Jokes.
You’ll hear classics like:
« Maman, je n’aime pas cette viande, est-ce que je peux la donner au chien ? »
« Non chéri, c’est le chien. »
viande = meat (you get help with vocabulary)
Translation : On the following page there’s a translation so you can check your understanding of the French text.
“Mummy, I don't like this meat. Can I give it to the dog?”
“No, dear, that is the dog.”
