Free language tutorials in 20 languages plus advice on traveling, teaching English overseas, and expat life in France.
French is my second language and I am passionate about helping others learn to speak and understand it. There are many lessons available, including a focus on informal language missing from traditional textbooks. For those planning to move to or teach English in France, there are also several pages of information and advice, especially for English Teaching Assistants.
There are a total of 20 language tutorials on the site, many which include audio files, flashcards and exercises. I'm a strong supporter of using authentic resources and technology in language learning and teaching, as well as studying multiple languages simultaneously. Check out the Multilingual tutorials for lists of Romance and Germanic vocabulary and verbs.
Learning languages and traveling go together! I've traveled to over 30 countries, and uploaded many of my photos to web albums. Feel free to use the photos as you'd like. Some tips and advice on traveling in Europe on a budget are also included.

For those who are curious as to who exactly runs this site: it's just me. I do most of the coding and updating by myself, but I have been helped by very generous people who wrote some of the language tutorials for languages that I am not yet studying.
