Growing Pains

Difficultés de croissance

Bonjour et merci beaucoup ! Thank you all for following me here to Lawless French, the new home of my efforts to share the beautiful French language with students and teachers all over the world.

I just want to apologize in advance to those of you who have subscribed to my newsletter. I’m writing lessons like crazy in order to get some foundational material up on the site as quickly as possible, and since my newsletter automatically sends every day that there is new content, you’re going to be receiving daily emails for the next week, at least. When I’ve got the basics covered, I’ll go back to my regular twice-weekly publishing schedule. I hope you can stick with me until then. 🙂

I’m far from ready for new lesson ideas, but if you have suggestions about the functionality / appearance of this site, please let me know. I’ve already darkened the font per one subscriber’s request.

Also, my heartfelt thanks to those of you who have chosen to make a monthly donation or buy me a book (or several, Mr. Skipper!) This support is entirely optional, and it means the world to me that so many of you offered it. My inspiration and energy are at an all-time high. Merci mille fois.

Bonne continuation !

    By some miracle I got an ‘o’ level pass in French at school about a 100 years ago & I only recently resumed studies , I’m retired & shall be an octogenarian next month .
    Your new website is a complete revelation to me & I find it sooo………. utterly useful & easy to follow !! I can now speak with so much more confidence with my French speaking friends when we meet up each month & I shall now be catching up with correct grammar & phrases.
    I wish you every success & I shall be staying here for ever !……….felicitations madame !

    Laura many thanks your consistently wonderful contribution to helping so many people enjoy and improve their love and knowledge of french. Vas-y! I really appreciate all your hard work. Your enthusiasm shines through.

    Laura, I was shocked to see your ‘au revoir’…….and to continue reading that you were leaving….I was scared that that was “it”! And I am “so relieved” to read that you are still here and working so hard!!! I am so pleased, I have been reading your newsletters for so long now, they are a part of my life, and I get sooooo much out of them….joy, frustration (sometimes due to the language), challenges, fun, excitement! Je suis une francophile, une Ă©tudiante très enthousiaste, j’aime le français beaucoup et chaque jour, j’Ă©coute le français! Je dois travailler aussi et j’ai deux enfants, mais toujours je cherche le temps pour mon français! Merci beaucoup pour tous! Vous ĂŞtes merveilleuse! J’aime votre travail! 🙂

    Laura, I am so pleased that you are continuing with your news letters as they have been part of my life for so many years. Signing up for your new newsletter was so easy and I look forward to many more years of learning. You always make everything so interesting and topical. Thanks again.

    Kindest Regards as Always

    Laura, I am so excited for your new endeavor. I’ve only been a French teacher for four years (after 30 years in another career). I have found your postings so important to my teaching practice. For my advanced students, you refine complex grammatical explanations. For my entry level students, you share the glory of learning the language.

    I am the only French teacher in my high school. But you make me feel as if I have a colleague. I often use your quiz questions when those provided by my textbook are just stupid or inaccurate. I know I can depend on you to be on top of things.

    Thanks for being there. I’m glad I can still depend on you.

    Monsieur Heitz

    thanks for all your work on about com and i’m looking forward to your new site

    Si tu cherches conseils … your logo is a little difficult to read … you might consider changing it or looking at other possibilities. That being said, you probably have a reason for it as it is, and this your site.
    Thanks for all of your hard work!

      Bonjour Jack,

      Thank you for the suggestion, but that’s kind of the point of the logo – it’s lawless. 🙂

    PAS POSSIBLE que French about com ne soit plus le site web de Laura Lawless! Je vous ai suivie pendant les annĂ©es et je vous ai recommandĂ©e Ă  tous mes Ă©lèves. En fait, l’abonnement Ă  votre site Ă©tait obligatoire pour eux! Maintenant, je suis en retraite et je continue Ă  lire et Ă©tudier la langue Ă  travers vos leçons et j’adore vos interros et je passe très souvent vos examens! Mais, heureusement, vous continuez de nous Ă©duquer ici. Je suis très enthousiaste chercher tous vos nouvelles idĂ©es!

    FĂ©licitations pour l’excellent travail que vous avez rĂ©alisĂ© et mes meilleurs vĹ“ux chaleureux pour votre continuation!
    Allez-y, Madame!
