Please take a moment to visit my other websites when you get a chance:


This blog is designed mainly for beginner French students and their teachers. You will notice that most of the websites are interactive, free, ad-free, and do not require any registration. This collection can be used by teachers in class, or for individual students on their own computers, either in school or at home. 

Please let me know if any of the links do not work or if there is anything inappropriate. Also please email me if you have an interactive website to recommend: sylviaduckworth@rogers.com. Merci, et amusez-vous bien!
