Bonjour, dear Reader,
I have been busy around here lately. "Here" refers to this French word journal, which I began in 2002. Since quitting a full-time job at a Swedish owned vineyard in 2003, I have made this newsletter my vocation. Writing it is my life. I am entirely devoted to bringing you these updates which I hope are educational, entertaining, and worthy of your time.
This year's améliorations include the addition of a twice-monthly bilingual post (thanks, Jean-Marc!), the return of our vocabulary section and, coming up, a summary and sound file of all the mots we have learned each month--words salt-and-peppered into these real-time stories, tucked around the roast chickens, mixed into the yogurt cake, absorbed in context along with the aroma and beat of this ever-changing French life.
Any ads you see here help to cover some of the expenses involved in maintaining the French Word-A-Day site. But if you wish to support the effort and time that go into creating this free language service, your contributions, via this link, are greatly appreciated.
