      Il me plait,but it does help to know basic grammar and vocabulary first. Is it je suis pret a apprendre or je suis pret pour apprendre?

      Merci beaucoup pour votre lecons. I’ve completed 11 lessons now & am thoroughly enjoying myself, especially the singing in Lesson 10!! There is one thing I’d like to mention however, & that is as we’ve not learnt any grammar as yet & still have a limited vocabulary, it would be helpful if you could spell all new words as they come up.
      I like to write down everything you say, & as I learnt French at school I can do this, or else look up words I’m not familiar with in a French dictionary. However I’d be reluctant to recommend this course to friends who’ve had no background in French, as there are a lot of unspelt words, & I think this would make it very difficult to write down what you say.
      eg in the song “vive le vent” I wasn’t sure whether it was “qui sont va” or “qui s’en va”, or perhaps something else. Can you help me here please Mark, & tell me why it should be one or the other?
      Please do not publish my comments. Thanks, Melvyn.

      I think you’re wrong about saying you speak a little French – on videos I’ve seen there is no mention of adding anything in between ‘little’ and ‘French’, and I’ve said the phrase without anything added and French-speaking people have understood me and a French teacher said it was correct. Makes me wonder if you’re telling the truth about being able to speak genuine French
