It amazes me. Where did the time go, why haven’t I feel home for this entire year? I was so distracted by the renovation noises, that a basic thing like this went unnoticed. Me, who otherwise [...] Ke...

  • Sing along with the new Piaf
    So, I turn my head to see who’s singing. The evening is young, a little chilly, not too late to take a stroll on the quai de la Seine, les bateaux-mouche moving slowly on the calm, cold water, the color of melted steel. People gathered around in silence, not making a big fuss about it, but transported into a sweet surrender, because someone was leading the way into love and joy. French [...] Ke...

  • It took me 730 hours, it will take you ONLY 4!
    So, I love driving, and the time spent in the car, driving between my French classes could be put at good use.

    So French immersions are very hot these days.

  • Are French genders a mystery for you? Watch this!
