Sites for French learning

My friend Morgane Mathews was born outside of Mexico city to a Mexican family who moved to France when she was just four. She gifts some Massachusetts high schoolers with her creative instruction in French and in Spanish. I asked her for some websites to help my girls learn French (it was my father’s first language). Here are the links she sent with her own comments. Thank you, Morgane.

[Even a Halloween set…]

http://www.leplaisirdapprendre.com/moodle/mod/resource/view.php?id=19
(this one is the main one but when you click on a link it sends you to a page where you have to create an account even though there is a hyperlink for a “guest”= “continuer comme invite”)

http://www.leplaisirdapprendre.com/moodle/mod/resource/view.php?id=32
(this page is for guests)

http://www.uni.edu/becker/french31.html
(this site has many useful and interesting links, I have not visited them all but it’s very comprehensive)

http://www.french-at-a-touch.com/
(in English for all things French, great info for planning a trip)

http://www.urich.edu/~jpaulsen/ecolepri.html

http://perso.orange.fr/ecole.comtesse/page2.html
(this is just a site for the pleasure of seeing what a small public grammar school looks like in France, it is called Comtesse de Segur because that was a famous writer who came from that area). [I would add that a documentary called Etre et Avoir that shows a small public one-room school in France is also beautiful]
