    I often visit your website, but it seems to be aimed at the advanced student (which I’m not), so many of my answers to the quizzes are wrong. Right now, I think I should be learning basic principles. Learning the nuances should come later. Ai-je tort ?

    Hi Laura. I followed you for many years on about com and was thrilled to find your new site. I studied French in college and in France back in the late 70’s/early 80’s and I don’t want to lose it. Your lessons (especially the listening comprehension and idiomatic expressions) are just wonderful. Merci beaucoup Laura!

    Laura it was really providential to find your free web lessons even when you were still with About com. You are always for me an excellent reference and help to learning french. I’m a Filipino missionary in France for already 2 years however my french is still very poor both written and spoken. Thank you very much for the generous service. May God bless you hundredfold.

    Happy to be with you again, Laura. Much success in your new endeavor. I’d be lost without your French lessons. Bien que j’ai grandi dans une famille française, je peux toujours apprendre de nouvelles choses Ă  partir de votre site.

    Merci pour votre aide afin que nous puissions en apprendre plus. C’est très gentil.

    Bonjour Mademoiselle,

    Looking forward to see your site in full bloom. Your advice about listening to French words has been really helpful in getting the hang of the language.

    Bonjour Laura, Bravo! Bon chance with your new site. You have provided a valuable resource and I love to get your emails which encourage me to keep my French going….you explain things so well that you make it seem easy. Keep up the wonderful inspiration.
    Kind regards, Angela.

    Un matin des montagnes russes upon reading that Laura’s time with About com had ended (the low) only to then find this new and exciting site (the high).

    How can we (your loyal followers) best support you here (beyond subscribing and following on Google+, Facebook, etc.)?

    I’m a French Immersion Teacher On Call and for the past 2 years I have thoroughly appreciated your regular & frequent incoming emails & website as a fantastic resource both for myself and sharing with my students. Such useful content & variety. I especially enjoyed challenging myself with the numerous quizzes you’ve provided as a part of my on-going French Language ProD! Always learning something & refreshing that which I’ve forgotten. Will definitely miss receiving all those emails. I agree with what others have posted so far – well done Laura! Merci beaucoup et bonne chance!

  19. Max Dinckmann 4 June 2014 / 16:33

    I wish you the very best in your new endeavor. I know it will be a success. I’ve learned a great deal from your first website.

  20. Mimi90027 4 June 2014 / 13:07

    I have been enjoying your lessons for the last several years and I am looking forward to the continual improvement of my skills with your assistance. I am glad that I can now contribute to the upkeep of your site and continual lessons.

  21. Pejjay 4 June 2014 / 11:55

    Bonjour Laura. Loving the look of your new site. Thanks for all your help in the past & looking forward to sharing & enjoying the future with you. From a very happy resident of Beautiful Brittany.

  22. Rahab 4 June 2014 / 11:35

    I have been enjoying your French lessons in the past. I am learning French (and using it on the job) but sadly I live in a country whose official language is English, among others – a real challenge!! Your articles have been my main method of keeping in touch with the practical use of the language – I read each one of them and save for future reference. I now look forward to continuing this journey with you as you move on. All the best!

  23. MB 4 June 2014 / 10:06

    Good on you, Laura! Go for it! And thanks for such high quality and thoughtful pieces so far.

  24. Marta 4 June 2014 / 9:56

    I want to thank you for all the support and knowledge you have given me in order to continue brushing up the language I adore. I wish you the best now at your new site and I will definitely continue following your uplifting lessons. Merci beaucoup.

  25. Siboniso 4 June 2014 / 9:44

    Bonne chance Laura et félicitation pour ta website nouvelle. I guess that french right there stinks!

  26. Don Nitkin 4 June 2014 / 9:35

    Je viens d’arrive de la France. Vingt-cinq jours. Paris, Val de Loire (Chinon, Saumur, …), et Nice. Menton Ă©tait comme tu as dit. Mais, malheureusement, tu n’y Ă©tais plus!!!! Hyères Ă©tait trop loin. Tant pis. Il faisait beau temps Ă  Nice. Mais ça coute les yeux de la tète lĂ -bas. Un dollar = 1.37 Euro.
    Ma femme est prête à repartir pour habiter à Nice. Elle aimait particulièrement Vieux Nice. Moi, il était difficile de marcher dans les ruelles (je suis un peu infirme), mais ça valait la peine.
    Bonne chance à Lawless French. Je vais suivre comme d’habitude.

    Chère Laura,
    Professeur de FLE depuis maintenant 5 ans, About French Language a toujours Ă©tĂ© une de mes ressources prĂ©fĂ©rĂ©es. J’y ai très souvent trouvĂ© les rĂ©ponses Ă  mes questions et Ă  celles de mes Ă©tudiants. Je suis maintenant impatiente de suivre le dĂ©veloppement de votre nouveau site que j’ai dĂ©jĂ  chaudement recommandĂ© Ă  mes Ă©lèves. Merci de nous faire partager vos passions.

    • RC 4 June 2014 / 7:17

      Just a quick question – Will the content that you had previously posted on the french about com website remain there, or would that be moved to the website?

      • lkl 4 June 2014 / 7:19

        About retains the copyright to that content, so it will stay there. I will be writing all new content for Lawless French.

        • Kalli Norton 4 June 2014 / 18:46

          Your postings on About com have been invaluable in my small efforts to learn French in the swamps of South Carolina. All the best to you on your new site, which I will definitely follow!

  28. Colville Greaves 4 June 2014 / 4:09

    Bonne chance. J’ai trouvé les leçons et les articles excellent !
    Bon continuité.

    Good for you Laura. You have been my “go-to girl” for quick checks on dozens of grammatical questions, phrases and tests over the last two years as we have prepared to spend a year in France, I know you will do extremely well. Bon chance!

  31. Alex Gerard 3 June 2014 / 23:28
