Winter in Paris~Missing Paris Day

(Photograph copyright: Kirsten Steen)

One of the things I have started again,
particularly good for when I am missing Paris or anticipating going,
is to listen to French radio.

This helps me to pick up on French words I have missed, lost
or that need refreshing.
The most trouble I have with the language is hearing it
so this helps to quicken my auditory comprehension
(such as it is).


If you care to join me,
go to
click on the red button on your right
that says "Ecoutez le Direct"
and try to pick out the words you understand.
You can also read the headlines
(with French dictionary handy, of course)
and pick up a few new words that way.

If I close my eyes, I can smell le cafe at my small red table,
taste le pain from my bread basket
and hear the conversation between the couple sitting next to me.

A bientot!
(look it up!)
