Sûr et certain

I'm absolutely positive you should read this lesson on the French expression sûr et certain.

On the Phone

French phone formulas
Talking on the phone can be trickier than face-to-face conversations, for a couple of reasons. The lack of gestures and facial expressions means there are no visual hints to help you understand, plus there's something about the phone that makes certain sounds more difficult to distinguish. Knowing some standard phone formulas will help your brain fill in any comprehension gaps.

DELF A1 Tips

DELF A1 - French proficiency test
The DELF A1 will test you on the four language skills in French: reading, writing, listening, and speaking. Here's some info about what to expect as well as tips on how to prepare for the test.

Et demain ?

Et demain - chanson
More than 300 French celebrities, confined alone at home but together in spirit, sang a beautiful song in appreciation of hospital workers making another tomorrow possible for the rest of us. Video with interactive subtitles.


Chez - French preposition
The preposition chez is unlike anything in English - it carries more meaning than a simple preposition and has a number of different uses.

Coronavirus, COVID-19, and confinement are bizarre and confusing for adults, so one can only imagine how kids feel.

They're all available for free as PDFs and/or online books.
