    Hi Laura….wonderful website. I am enjoying the quizzes and information. A great way to keep learning. Thanks. I will be back for more!

  2. Bruce Hill 10 March 2018 / 3:49

    I would like to support LF by buying Intermediate French for Dummies but Amazon does not seem to allow payment via Paypal. Is there a way around this?

    • lkl 10 March 2018 / 7:44

      Bonjour Bruce,

      Thank you for offering to support this site by buying my book. To purchase on Amazon, I think you’d either need a Paypal debit card or Paypal gift certificate.

  3. Steve Davis 16 January 2018 / 17:19

    Bonjour Laura. I would love to have access to your intermediate/advanced mot de jour. Is there an option to pay for an entire year up front by mailing you a check (in U.S. $)? If so, could I get the address to mail it to, who to make it out to, and any other info I would need? Merci mille fois for the great work that you do. I’ve been a fan since way back in your French About days. Respectfully, Steve Davis

    • lkl 19 January 2018 / 9:59

      Bonjour Steve, thanks so much. 🙂 There is a workaround, I’ll email you.

    I find myself coming back again and again to your excellent lessons and would love to send a check. If you could send me an address, I’ll mail it out. Thanks again for all the work you put into creating this outstanding website.

    • lkl 29 September 2017 / 9:16

      Merci beaucoup Gary, I’ve emailed you. Bonne journée ! 🙂

    Merci beaucoup pour un site juste, si riche et bien organisé!

  7. Claire Ballard 23 September 2016 / 12:13

    Chère Laura,

    I have been an avid reader of your site for simply ages, perhaps years! I can’t thank you enough for all the excellant information that you post so regularly for people like me to devour.
    I have just bought the Intermediate French for Dummies and can’t wait for it to be delivered.

    • lkl 23 September 2016 / 12:19

      Merci bien Claire, I hope you like it. 🙂

  8. Chacal 21 September 2016 / 21:26

    Thank you Laura, your site is a big help for me. I too would like an address to send a check si possible. Merci encore

    • lkl 22 September 2016 / 5:23

      Merci Chacal! Please check your email. 🙂

  9. Aydin YAVAS. 21 September 2016 / 14:51

    I need the address where I can send my donation cheque in Euros for LKL.
    I also need the name for whom I will make out the cheque. (LKL ?)
    Thank you for clarifying the misteries about CE QUI, CE QUE, CE DONT.
    None of the expensive “CLE International” books properly explaines them.
    I understand the French books I read quicker and rather better now after I digested your lessons about them. ( I do not exagerate, that is true.)
    Thank you.

  10. Jake 15 August 2016 / 15:50

    Bonjour Mme. Lawless,

    Je voudrais que vous sachiez, on utilise votre site du web chaque jour dans ma classe de français. Français est une vraie passion pour moi dans la vie, et je continuerai mes études en utilisant vos ressources. J’apprends la langue depuis 8 ans maintenant et je parle avec quelques gens français pour que je puisse m’améliorer. Merci pour votre travail — et créant ce site du web, ainsi que votre aide sur «». Merci encore!

  11. Kim 23 June 2016 / 12:39

    Thank you so much Laura! I used to use your guides in about com a lot, and I was aided alot in my french grammar and verb tenses. When I found out that you weren’t on about com anymore I was so shocked, because the website isn’t the same without you. I was so happy to find that you have your own website now, and I can finally access all the verb conjugation tables easily, with all the tenses organized beautifully in one page. Makes life so much easier. Thank you again!

  12. jack 5 December 2014 / 10:11

    Hi Ms. (F)Lawless,
    You have helped me more than you could imagine in my three years of French. I made an account so I could thank you for allowing me to improve my comprehension and speaking abilities in this beautiful language. I have one question though. What does the K. stand for in your name?

    • lkl 5 December 2014 / 10:14

      Bonjour Jack,

      You’re very welcome!

      The K stands for Kismet. 🙂

      Bonne continuation !

  13. Tony Kozlowski 2 November 2014 / 1:06

    Hi – Thanks so much for helping me with my French. I have lots more to learn, so I would like to contribute to help you stay motivated with your endeavors. Maybe eating well is a way to do that. Is the hard cover vegan book from Amazon OK? Also need your address to send it to. After you get it and try some of the recipes, I would be interested in your opinions, possibly as an audio in French. Merci beaucoup.

    • lkl 2 November 2014 / 6:08

      Bonjour Tony,

      You’re welcome, and thanks for offering to buy me a book! Amazon has my address, so if you order it through my Amazon wishlist, they’ll send it to me.

      I have a veggie website where I put all of my favorite recipes and review cookbooks:

      Bonne continuation !

  14. joan barrett 1 November 2014 / 7:02

    I absolutely love your new website especially the listening practices. Where do we send our donation?

      Merci bien – glad you like it! The easiest way to send a donation is via Stripe using the link above. If you’d rather send a check, please let me know and I’ll email you my mailing address.

      Bonne continuation !

  15. GUILLET Abbe 23 August 2014 / 9:41

    On behalf of my students, I thank you for all you have done to promote French in the US. I require my students to subscribe to your (old and now new) site. I wish you luck in this new adventure which will certainly be successful.

  16. Chris 7 July 2014 / 6:16

    Your work is greatly appreciated; reading and studying your newsletters and language tips have become a daily event! Merci beaucoup

  17. David 22 June 2014 / 22:19

    Après quelques années de votre ancien site, je vous souhaite bonne chance. J’ai acheté un livre de votre liste. Merci.

  18. Amber Flake 15 June 2014 / 10:08

    I really love these little tidbits of knowledge…they are a great stepping stone to my goal of daily learning and studying of the French language. I already speak Portuguese, and have struggled to keep the two languages separate in my mind. But, I moved to Switzerland 6 months ago, and have a strong desire/obsession to learn French. With 6 children, it can be hard to find the time, but your website makes a fabulous supplement to my weekly French classes. Thank you!

  19. Sharon 11 June 2014 / 14:29

    I really like how you do the Reading Practice, with the blurred translation. It’s an excellent way for me to learn. Merci beaucoup!

  20. KEVIN 10 June 2014 / 11:55

    Hi Laura…thank you for all the French lessons and tips through the years. I’m looking forward to following your new site! I’m also happy to be a pledging supporter to help enable your most excellent work!

    Merci vous!

  21. Charlotte 10 June 2014 / 11:21

    Keep up the great work Laura. I have been using your work on about com for many years and I am now living in France. Still have much to to to improve my french and am looking forward to using your new site.

  22. Janet 9 June 2014 / 14:33

    Dear Laura,

    A massive thank you for all you did on the previous site 🙂
    It is wonderful to see you here with your new site and I wish you all the success & happiness you deserve. I loved how you answered me personally when I emailed you a question a while back and that you really care about the people you teach.
    Your new site looks really exciting and amazing already!! I can’t wait to continue following you on here and expanding my knowledge of the beautiful French language and also the culture of France too.
    P.S. I tried to buy one of your ‘wish list’ books but I only have a UK Amazon account and it wouldn’t let me purchase on the ‘.com’ one!!
    Merci et bon courage, Janet.

    • lkl 9 June 2014 / 14:37

      Bonjour Janet,

      You’re very welcome, and thank you! I’ve been pouring a lot of time into this site for the last week to make sure that there’s a little something for everyone. Another week or so and I’ll feel pretty good about settling down into a more sustainable pace. 🙂 Bonne continuation !

  23. Joan 7 June 2014 / 21:13

    Je vais essayer de vous écrivez en français.
    Merci pour tout ce que vous nous aviez donné pendent les année à About French. On peut dire que c’est beaucoup plus qu’un boulot pour vous. Vous avez l’amour de la langue.
    Merci et bonne chance!

  24. Evelyn Cassaday 6 June 2014 / 10:52

    Ditto to all the other messages of thanks and appreciation. Love your books and your new website. Merci and bonne chance.

  25. Barbara Gleave 5 June 2014 / 17:28

    Horrified when I read your au revoir! but phew, you are still here for your followers. Thanks and good luck. Your website looks wonderful.

  26. Paul Vail 4 June 2014 / 20:34

    It’s is great to see that so many people admire your work as much as I do. Like all great teachers, your make your subject interesting. If you ever offer French Immersion classes in France, I’ll be there.
    Bonne chance et meilleurs voeux.

  27. linda Eckstone 4 June 2014 / 15:57

    I recently discovered you and love your site. I will continue to enjoy what you do.

  28. Jeff C. Klein 4 June 2014 / 13:16

    I have been with you for many years, from Morocco to Costa Rica to both parts of France and now to Guadaloupe, and through it all have studied French with you. But I have also enjoyed reading of your travel exploits and hope you continue to write about your travels in the future and post a link on your new website. You know, in case you get a bit bored in teaching us French.
    Merci beaucoup, Laura.

  29. Maria 4 June 2014 / 9:55

    Thank you so much for all your lessons a life saver for me.. I will follow to your new site!! Merci beaucoup! Maria

  30. Tilly 4 June 2014 / 9:43

    My heart sank when i read your goodbye…. but not for long as i see you are to continue…. you have been a great help in my understanding of France and French …. vive les leçons!

  31. Lawrence Oswald 4 June 2014 / 8:08

    Laura, these French lessons are the absolute best of any language instruction in any language I have ever seen. Thank you. I hope the links will still be available on french about com as they are a treasure. On the chance that these lessons will disappear can they be permanently be saved on MY computer as opposed to my (Yahoo) email and About’s cloud?

    • lkl 4 June 2014 / 8:12

      Bonjour Lawrence, et merci ! I don’t know for certain, but I’m pretty sure that About will keep my site intact.

  32. Gladys Marcon 4 June 2014 / 6:35

    Thank you Laura, I am full of admiration for all your enthusiasm and teaching. With best wishes from Gladys in South Africa.

  33. Pejjay 4 June 2014 / 6:20

    Hi there, for a moment I thought that was it and ‘no more LKL’ – thank-goodness you are continuing, albeit in a different guise! Looking forward to seeing what comes next. Bonne continuation.

  34. John Bowles 4 June 2014 / 6:11

    Many thanks for everything you provided on your previous website, a fantastic resource. Best of luck with this one, I will be following it for sure.

  35. Vic Horne 4 June 2014 / 5:12

    Hi,without your help and explanations I would still be totally phased by the French language.Little by little the old grey matter has been retaining the rules and baffling complexity of the subject.
    Will subscribe to your new exciting venture.

  36. Tim Holt 4 June 2014 / 5:02

    Thanks Laura for all your teaching and all the very best for your new venture – I will miss you too. Tim

  37. Tony Ansell 4 June 2014 / 3:03

    Good luck for your new venture. I have enjoyed and greatly valued your lessons in the past and hope to continue to connection

  38. Alina 4 June 2014 / 2:52

    Thank you so much for everything so far! I cannot tell you how much your lessons have helped me!

    I will follow you no matter where you go 🙂

    Merci infiniment et une excellente journée à toi,


  39. Glenn 4 June 2014 / 2:24

    Your French teaching has been a lifeline for me as an American living and working in France. I have been living in France for more than 13 years — the problem is that I’m an English teacher, so I speak (and hear) English all day long. Thank you so much for your incredible work!

  40. Ian Steadman 4 June 2014 / 2:07

    You’re brilliant and I’m pleased to follow you into your new journey.

  41. Julia Frey 4 June 2014 / 1:39

    I’ve enjoyed your site for years! Thank you so much for all your good work. Hope this new site will be a great success.

  42. Anne -Sophie 4 June 2014 / 0:59

    Parce que grace à vous, j’améliore mon anglais, mes expressions idiomatiques et mes traductions, je vous suis! Bon courage pour cette nouvelle aventure, on est tous avec vous!

  43. Andrea 4 June 2014 / 0:52

    Oh my goodness, big change! I will miss your wonderful emails but of course will follow you over here!

  44. Eva Ernst 4 June 2014 / 0:46

    I am so excited!! I am so happy for you, I don’t know which buttons to push! Thank God for you and the fact that you are still communicating. Do sign me up for subscribing; my email would not be the same without you, Dr. Lawless. Hey, I need my daily dose of a touch of french! Sweet! Eva Lorraine Ernst

  45. christine sheffield 4 June 2014 / 0:35

    Many, many thanks for the wonderful resource you have provided and I wish you every success in your new venture.

  46. Kaiying Chan 3 June 2014 / 23:52

    Even from here down under in Australia I’ve followed your weekly dose of French with great pleasure, and I wish you will continue to be just as wonderfully successful in your new website.

    Thank you for making learning French so interesting. Best wishes for all you do.

  47. [email protected] 3 June 2014 / 23:50

    I “discovered” you my first year of teaching French. Your site was a lifesaver as I went about trying to drag up what I hadn’t done anything with for 40 years! How ironic—poetic almost—that you’re heading off in a new direction just as I, too, am leaving the area of my “major” love to make room for a much younger, more orally fluent teacher. I’ll still be “visiting”, though. I love French and I love to learn! Bonne chance!-Leslie Paterson

  48. betty heycke 3 June 2014 / 23:46

    I will continue to follow you. You are my favorite French teacher! Keep up the good work.

  49. evgenia 3 June 2014 / 23:40

    I’ve been subscribed for 6.5 years! Wishing you the best in your endeavors!

  50. Judith Samson 3 June 2014 / 23:12

    Hello Laura and so many thanks for all that you have taught me on your previous website over many years. I am glad that you sound happy in striking out on you own and I will certainly follow you where
    you go.

    All best wishes to you,

    Judith Samson

  51. Pi 3 June 2014 / 22:23

    C’est prèsque impossible d’apprendre le français sans vous. Bonne chance et un grand merci!

  52. Crawley 3 June 2014 / 22:06

    I have enjoyed your newsletters and lessons on About com and will miss your presence there. Good luck with your new venture. Bonne chance.

  53. Kathy Hines 3 June 2014 / 22:02

    Bonne continuation et je vais continuer a apprendre avec le nouveau site. Merci.

  54. Jeff McClintock 3 June 2014 / 21:02

    Looking forward to learning more french. Merci beaucoup
    Bonne journée

  55. Maribeth 3 June 2014 / 20:50

    Change is good. I will follow you wherever you go.

  56. Liz Fisher 3 June 2014 / 20:35

    Success in your new venture. You can bet I’ll follow you to this new site. Just assumed About com was sort of magic in supplying info on multiple subjects. It’s real folks supplying their expertise!

  57. Mick 3 June 2014 / 20:14

    Looking forward to learning more French from this site.

  58. Gary Harryman 3 June 2014 / 22:01

    I wish you well and look forward to spending many edifying hours here.
