Bonjour ! Just a quick note to say happy November! and to let you know that Lawless French is better than ever.
Bonjour tout le monde ! Lawless French is always free, but the time I spend on it is considerable.

I've just added various rewards you can claim based on certain pledges - check it out! :-)
This free website is packed with resources for students of all levels - where to begin? Here's a quick overview.
Two years ago, I gave up my 15-year position teaching virtual French with a dotcom in order to continue teaching virtual French on my own site. I briefly entertained the idea of doing something completely different, but found that I couldn't. The fact is that I feel compelled to write about French - I love it and I'm good at it, so what else could I possibly do?
I have a little favor to ask of you... if you like this site (and I think it's fair to assume you do, since you're here!), I'd love for you to share it with family, friends, and classmates who are learning or want to learn French.
I'm shocked and heartbroken by the terrorist attacks that occurred in Paris Friday night... there are no words to describe the profound sadness I feel at the thought of this beautiful city being targeted, and of so many innocent people hurt and killed. I feel helpless - so as always, I turn to language in the tiny hope that the knowledge I am able to share will be helpful to someone.

Bonjour les Francophiles ! I hope your French studies are coming along nicely. This is just a quick note to let you know about two new features I've recently added to the site: lessons sorted by level and printer-friendly pages.
