A great website for grammar (when you can't find one of Sitesurf's very helpful answers on the forums) is French About.com. Laura K. Lawless may not be on there anymore, but her explanations are really good and still are today.

Hope it helps, Tamires! :)

Like Syttamore said, french.about.com is really helpful for grammar.

For verb conjugations I like http://conjugator.reverso.net/conjugation-french.html ... enter any form of a verb and it will give you the complete conjugation, which is very useful.

One big problem I had with French, after first learning Spanish, was with pronunciation, especially since a lot of letters aren't pronounced. I found a speech synthesizer that lets you choose a French dialect (France or Belgium or Canada) and pick from several different speakers and moods. Then you can enter a phrase or key words you are having problems hearing correctly and play them repeatedly until you can tell the difference.

The site I use is http://www.acapela-group.com/ ... try it, with French(France) and enter a string like "le, la, les, c'est, ces, si, petit, petite, fil, fils" ... hearing the difference in pronunciation between (for example) 'petit' and 'petite' is something that comes up repeatedly in the lessons.

Hope this helps. French was hard!

IMO, French in Action from Yale University is the single most useful tool for learning French ever made. You have there 52 half-hour episodes conducted entirely in French (so-called "full immersion" technique of learning), so some grasp of French before starting with it would be advisable. All episodes can be found online. Some of them are also on Youtube.

Hey you should say "I'm here to say thank you for helping me!!"

When you say the reason for being somewhere, you say {I'm here} + {infinitive}. Here are some more examples :)

I'm here to order a cake.

I'm going to the corner to meet Larry right now.

I need to go to FNAC to buy a book.

We're here to say hello.

He's here to fix the shower.

BUT:

I'm in Paris for work.

I'm here just for the summer.

I come here for the yoga classes, mainly.

Savannah is here just for the free food.

Jim doesn't like being at parties (for) too long. (OK with or without "for"...)

Espero que isso te ajuda bastante! :D

Podemos conversar direitinho em portugues, o em frances depois do que vc fala melhor. (Eu sou americano.)

BOA SORTE! --- BONNE CHANCE! --- GOOD LUCK!
