      That was really cool! I have learnt about adjective agrrements before but it’s so cool to see it actually being used somewhere. And if you haven’t seen Ratatouille, go see it!

      Bravo! Congratulations! I think your way of “teaching” french is one the best one can meet, and so funny and “cool”!. You do such a great job. ¡Muchas gracias!

      I’ve been looking forward to this for a while now, since you first mentioned it, and I’m so pleased that you’ve kicked off with this phrase ‘il y en a’ and explained it in detail as I’ve noticed this phrase appear quite often now and it was starting to really annoy me not know what it meant! Great timing. I really enjoyed the first lesson.
      I love the concept and it makes the french even more relevant to see it in action.
      Only other thing I’d like to give you for feedback is that I did want there to be a little more content in the lesson, don’t know if that’s possible?
      Great job though. Thanks.

      This video series is awesome so far! I love that you’re teaching using objects that are really in France. That makes it so applicable because if I was there, I’d now know what that sign meant!

      I am going to pass this URL onto out MFL dept at school – I thought it fantastic!! Am also going to get my son to listen on his iPod as he is shortly going to be taking his GCSE French oral, etc!
      Only problem I have is, I could download to my iPhone no problem and I have the sound and pictures (brilliant!) but trying to download to my pc ……. well, it seems impossible – help!

      This is a great help, thanks so much!

      This site is helpul. But, the Scottish accent makes it difficult to understand some of the words… for example” bought” sounds like “but” when the speaker has a thick Scottish accent.

      Would be better if the speaker slows down a bit…. Had to repeat segments several times in order to understand what he is saying

      Now having found Walk Talk & Learn. A good idea. Unfortunately, I have only just started to learn French, so some of it was a little above me. How I wish I had learnt more French when at school.

      I find that as I am approaching what may be called “the silver years” retaining some of the words gets to me.

      However I am ploughing on, all of it is extremely interesting and maybe ‘fun’
