Bonjour - salut "Little Queen"!

If you are learning French:
Some information about reine (queen) and petit(e) (little, small, etc.): "petite reine" refers especially to the bicycle, and reinette is the name of various apple cultivars; rainette stands for green tree frogs, mainly the European tree frog, Hyla arborea.

Bravo, ton (puis-je te tutoyer?) niveau est remarquable pour une anglophone! Si tu le permets, j'ajoute quelques petites corrections:
les petites choses: c'est correct, mais je pense que tu préfèreras les petites choses de la vie (très général) ou les choses et/ou les créatures (les plus) mignonnes ou tout ce qui est mignon/petit, etc.)
i love/like = j'adore ... (je ..., j' ..., if the following word starts with a vowel)
... y compris les reines, bicyclettes et grenouilles (if you refer directly to something: "les")

Je lis mieux le français que je ne le parle, mais j'ai bien appris votre leçon.
(ne = 1 + le = 2)
1 - Extrait du "Littré": Ne explétif après un comparatif d'inégalité suivi de que et d'une proposition complétive. Vous écrivez mieux que vous ne parlez. Il est plus riche qu'il ne l'était. Elle est plus belle que vous ne croyez.
"Je pars plus amoureux que je ne fus jamais". [Racine, Bérénice]
2 - Au lieu de répéter "... que je ne parle le français", utiliser "le", à savoir "... que je ne le parle".

I hope that these explanations are not too complicated.

And a good laugh for you: a parody about French police agents learning English:

Thank you, little queen; it is a pleasure to chat with you. Take your time - step by step.

You might like to look into old movies, like Don Camillo:

And don't forget to have a good laugh with some black humour.

Last time, I had some problems with the links; today, all is fine again:

Lol - thank you, Serenity; I just tried to collect - with a smile - some up-votes. But don't worry, I don't take it too seriously; it is just a little "wink".

And thank you for caring!

No to Dani....

We still need you on the other WORD games and the Acros.

Can you help me to find them? There are quite a few themes, functions or actions, which I could not find yet.

Thank you for your support.

Thank you, StarzAbove!
