French book club?
I have opened a thread to discuss our book club: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/4089414
I have recently seen that many Duolingo learners, practicing other languages (e.g. German) have founded some kind of a book club to read and discuss the books in the language, they are learning. Now I have wondered whether something like this exists for French learners too, as I would really enjoy practicing French in such a way. Has anyone heard of something like this for learning French? Thanks for answering :)
I looked for this once after I saw students from other languages talking about their book clubs, and I found this post: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/3237477. However, I haven't seen any other posts for the French club since that one (only for the other languages), so I don't know if the French club ever went anywhere, maybe there weren't enough people interested? Someone might ask the host what happened.
Solarhome, in the original book club post (I linked to it earlier), they were planning to read books in English because they are easier to find, and then discuss them in French. But if you're looking for children's books online, someone posted a link to this website: http://www.childrenslibrary.org/icdl/AdvancedSearchCategory?ilang=English (I don't remember who, or I'd give credit). You can narrow the search by age group and by language, and if you search for books in French and English, you can switch back and forth between languages on each page to check your translations as you go.
