Hello, Again, Gentle Reader(s),

This is the one. This is it. Finally, after all of these years, this is the post that is going to make me FAMOUS.

 

Oh! combien de temps j'ai attendu ce moment!

.

And it’s also going to help all of you to become more “continental” and refined and good at talking French. 

Yes, I am going to teach you all how to parle Francais! In French, even! And in three French Dialects! When I’m done with you, you will be able to travel almost anywhere where French is the spoken language and be able to order a hamburger or a wind up toy train!

Here’s how it’s going to work: 

First, I will display a photo which contains an object labeled in English, followed by the French translation of the English.

Next, you will click on the audio file and listen carefully to the pronunciation (which I remember entirely from Mr. Twohy’s French class in my sophomore year at St. Bonaventure High School in 1966 – 67).

Next, you can listen to the subsequent audio files to get the Southern France and French-Canadian dialects, if you so wish.

Shall we get started?
