A Lovely Video in French
I joined Duolingo to learn French after I watched this video on YouTube. I just loved the sound of the language. :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xkM-SDNoI_8
I originally posted the video on my introduction thread the other day, but I thought more people would have a chance to see it if I made a thread for it. :)
This interview is from a wonderful French show called "Le Petit Journal" which is similar to "The Daily Show" in the US. You can watch full episodes on their website anywhere in the world, so it's great for learning French, as they speak clearly and talk about international current affairs (their coverage of the Paris attacks, including the fact they lost a member of their own staff was very moving.) And the boy and his father returned to Le Petit Journal on Friday for an adorable interview about their recent international fame, be sure to watch it! http://www.canalplus.fr/c-emissions/c-le-petit-journal/pid6515-le-petit-journal.html?vid=1332554
Edit: There's also an interview in English/French with subtitles with Anderson Cooper https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sHfDcU9eBf4
ooh, I never new there was a new video of them! Thank you for sharing! :)
I wish there were English subtitles. :'( I'll come back to it when I finish the course here. haha
Ah yes that might be a problem for beginners, so in the mean time I recommend the Easy French YouTube series that has both English and French subtitles together which is a great help for learning new words and getting used to French pronunciation and general "street talk". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bb4zvZdrMz4
Yes, it's on my bookmark! I'm like a baby and I need more practice to understand even that, but I have a feeling I'm on the right path here on Duolingo with you guys. :)
I think you are! For now concentrate on unlocking all the lessons to complete the French "lesson tree" here on Duolingo, then try and keep them all gold with daily practice to keep your streak going (having a streak that you might lose is great motivation to make you practice every day). Other resources like Easy Languages are probably best when you've done the tree, at least that's how I've been doing it! Good luck! ;)
Thanks for posting, great video!
The comments below the video are something else... my god.
I know. :'( I had a feeling it might have sounded a bit corny in other languages, but it's not even the point in the first place...
French is a beautiful language. Both in sound and in structure. Enjoy!
Thank you for sharing the video! That was beautiful. I cried. :')
PS: I gave you the rest of my lingots, 78 in total because why not? Pleasant day!
Whoa, thank you very much! Can't wait to do the same to someone else soon! haha :) Have a fantastic day!
What do you mean? Did you give me a lot of them? I'm too new here and I don't know what to do with them, except I just bought "Double or Nothing" the other day. :D
I gave you several lingots, to match the several that were already there, because the video pleased me. Thanks very much for posting the link.
Double or nothing is good--I "buy" a new one every week.
If you are interested in maintaining a long "streak"--the number of days in a row that you have reached your daily quota of points (XPs) on Duolingo--you might think of buying a "streak freeze," which will allow you to skip one day (and one day only, until you buy another streak freeze) without having your streak end because of the missed day.
There is not a whole lot that lingots are really good for. Most people use them (I think) to give to others as a sign of approval for a good post.
Thank you, slogger. :) I had to make sure what you meant because English is my second language. haha I'm glad you liked the video!
I'll start giving away the lingots I got too! :)
oh my god! that's how I started too! I think Duolingo has helped me a lot. since I want to be a teacher when I`m older, preferably a French teacher, I thought that Duolingo was the best site for me! when my dad found out that I joined Duolingo, he was very proud of me because he knew how much I want to be a French teacher :)
