  • Language exchange – two families offer hospitality to each other; either as a family group, just the children or adults; this language swap is a modern approach to the traditional French exchange.
  • Live and learn with your teacher – stay in the home of a teacher to learn French formally.
  • Stay with a host family – stay with a host family for a French language immersion holiday.
  • Conversation training – day-to-day access to a native speaker when you host a Language Au Pair in your home for intensive, language and conversation practice.

Body language in French : common gestures

This page lists some body gestures commonly associated with certain French expressions.  Each expression has a photo next to it that shows the gesture most French people use when saying the expression.  A great idea, very much in line with Bla Bla Français' animated dialogues approach !

Why I didn't learn French in France

Jimmy's experience trying to learn the language while hanging out in France ... A fun article !
