      1. Bonjour !!
        Je viens de tomber par hasard sur votre blog en cherchant les paroles de "la chanson des squelettes" et je le trouve plutôt bien.
        Certains liens me serviront je pense car je suis professeur de français en Australie et je suis toujours à la recherche de nouveauté !
        Merci beaucoup ;)

      2. Dear Madam,

        I would like to introduce my website to your teachers and your students of French language.
        My name is Pascal d'Hervé, I teach French and manage a website to help students learn French for free:
        On www.frenchspanishonline.com you will find basic vocabulary with audio, games, a section with Video grammar always easy to understand. French expressions (video) and also Ratounet, a little pet singing in French, many activities are in HTML5 so they can be played on an iPad.

        Also on http://www.frenglishnews.com you will find News in French and in English with audio.

        I hope you will find this information useful,

        Best Regards,

        Pascal d'Hervé
