I learned a great deal of my French in Provence, which is a southern region of France not far from the Mediterranean. It's very beautiful there - you can walk outside and see beautiful, rustic buildings, fields of lavender, and regular games of boules in the town square. Life is quiet and easy, and you can walk to the village whenever you need to. There's also a routine market, where you can find almost anything from bottle tops to cheese to nougat (everyone should eat nougat) to clothes from Italy. It's an idyllic life, one which I personally think cannot be reproduced elsewhere.

the Notre Dame!! i went on a french vacation a while back and it was so cool!!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/YukonCRT

did you see the tour de france?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/lolp3633

alas no we didn't go there at the same time. I know from your posts that you like the tour so would you one day want to be in it/see it?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/YukonCRT

Maybe create Team Canine


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/YukonCRT

and instead of a peloton, call it a pack


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/lolp3633

haha that sounds awesome :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/YukonCRT

wow, but going to France must have been awesome


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/lolp3633

yeah but it was when i was in fourth grade. I'm a junior now, so i've forgotten a lot of it (except ya know, the really good parts that stay with you forever....which actually turned out to be a lot of the trip). My parents are actually wanting me to learn french so that if we go back one day i'll be able to translate. Of course though, going back is a rare possibility.

Definitely the beauty of the land and of its people. I spent a summer backpacking in France. I was with a native French speaker and we started in Provence and made our way up along the western coast to Nantes, then Normandy and eventually Lille. It was so beautiful seeing the geography transform from the beautiful seaside to the green pastures of farmland to the city. And the people we met along the way were always so pleasant. I don't think hospitality exists in America the way it exists in Europe. It was such a beautiful experience.

You went backpacking! I always wanted to try! That's awesome! I have a bunch of hiking gear, but got to use em only in day hikes. I also have a subscription to Backpacker Magazine. OK, sorry i got hyper, back to the subject. So that is the best part of knowing French, I think you will enjoy a trip to France better. Also i think Backpacking is one of the best ways to see places you can't access any other ways. Thanks for sharing your experience.

You're welcome! And good luck on whatever trips you have planned in the future. It sounds like you're ready for it. They'll be worth it!

I am a big fan of one the most famous grand tours... Le Tour De France! I am also a fan France's ariane 5 rocket. another favorite thing about France for me is, this is one of the big cycling countries. Even cycling terms are all from France. And France is a big part of the ESA (European Space Agency)

my favourite thing about France is its beauty (la belle France), but what has this got to do with languages?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/YukonCRT

well, I like to learn about the language origin country. Like i learned about Latin America and the whole history of the people, the culture, and of course the language (cause I'm learning Spanish). So i was just wondering if anyone is interested about the country where their language came from, and see what they like about it
