Joyeux anniversaire

Today was my birthday!! Now I'm officially 24 years old. I'm so happy thank God I have everything I had planned to have by this age :D

So, I was feeling a little festive and I looked for the happy birthday in french, here it is


It's actually a bad video, but my internet isn't working and it's the only one I could find.

Lesson 1 basics

The first thing we should know are basic greetings. I found this great peb page http://www.bonjour.com/index.php?lesson=1 and there are the basic greetings and you can read it and pronounced them.


This week

I also join a social network desalinated for learning call "italki" It's like babbel but free!! :D It's so cool, I've been writing some letters in french and also in english I need to practice, and the receptors correct my grammar and I correct them in their spanish!!

Great tool for practice.

This week I download "L'histoire d'Aladdin" from http://www.litteratureaudio.com/ and Download it to my blackberry and I've been listening to it, It's also great, my french teacher congratulate me saying that I have gone al lot better yeih!


First Steps…Premières étapes

Before anything, learn as much as you can about the language. In this case, it's easier to have a gramatical idea of french starting from spanish, because both are romantic languages

What I first did was hearing some music, my favorite site is www.deezer.com totally free and they have great artist. If you have an iPhone or iPod you can download the app. Someone stole my iPod 3 weeks ago :( If you don't have an iPod and have a Blackberry I found an app call "radio france" it also works. What I'm doing is finding good artist in deezer and then download the music from youtube, I use this adress http://www.video2mp3.net/ so It's pretty cool, you can download the music to your mp3 player.

I also found some audiobooks in http://www.litteratureaudio.com/ I started with children books.

And of course to all the TV addicts the best you can do is find some movies in french (Still looking for) for me it's a better choice to rent them.

That's all for this night,
