French the natural way: a special invitation

Coucou les French Learners,

Noël approche, Christmas is approaching…

On Sunday, we lighted the third candle on the Advent wreath. Watch Marie et Médor Christmas adventures to find out more about this tradition.

La couronne de l’Avent

We also baked les petits sablés de Noël, Christmas cookies, miam ! Here is a simple French recipe.

La pâte à sablés à la cannelle (= cinnamon)

We played Taboo with Christmas words.

And we watched a fun French Christmas movie. Watch Santa & Cie trailer!

Le week-end de l’Avent parfait ! The perfect weekend before Christmas!

Une invitation spéciale

And so I thought: ” Why not having the same perfect festive event with the French learners community?

More than a year ago, my Dear Man and I started to create a French learners community. Our goal was to make French accessible to ALL. To give OPTIMAL FRENCH INPUT. That is to say COMPREHENSIBLE and COMPELLING French stories to make language acquisition a JOYFUL experience.

More members are joining US and acquiring the beautiful French language joyfully. The community keeps growing with LOVE and CARE. We are GRATEFUL for YOU, our members.

It is about time WE meet YOU LIVE!

On Tuesday 22nd December

KayBear who is doing the the Baby Stage says: ” Alice, you are THE BEST French mom ever! I cannot believe how quickly my understanding is developing. I wake up and think a few French words… They are random words- but I know it means my brain is acquiring the language whilst I sleep. Merci beaucoup ma maman.


Happy French acquisition!
