I am looking for my lost friends.
Hello, Tiffanee - how are you doing?
Hello, QuizTime - thank you for welcoming me.
Hello Glispix - how are you doing?
Hello, Melizmatic - how nice to see you and your "smiles" again!
Hi Marianne, glad to see you've joined us....
Hello, Linnster! Lol - indeed!
Thank you, Linnster!
Hello Gypsy - how are you doing?
Thank you - dealing with floods of mails and messages on other siters, hence my late answer.
Have a great week-end!
You're welcome, Gypsy
Hello, ChuckTom - how are you doing?
Lol - thank you, ChuckTom!

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:
About the movie:
I wish you a wonderful week-end!
I know that you should converse (I provided links of the Alliance française below), they can help you to find a group for talking and learning.
Furthermore, you can watch TV5 monde:
First of all, the dictionaries:
Verbs (conjugation - verbs, irregular verbs, tables, assistance and exercises)
I think that these videos can help you with the basic pronounciation (for kids) and for some sentences:
In the USA:
And don't forget that French is spoken in various countries, although accents and vocabularies vary much.
Some of my preferred songs (they are old, but will poetry ever grow old?):
Yves Duteil - La langue de chez nous
Frida Boccara - Les moulins de mon coeur
Françoise Hardy - Mon amie la rose
Véronique Sanson - Besoin de personne
Jean Ferrat - C'est beau la vie
France Gall - Ella, elle l'a
I hope that you like the sound.
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:
Have a great Sunday!
Hello Serenity - thank you for your smile.
I know, I am very late; I needed a break, and now, I am dealing with a huge flood of mails and messages.
BTW, can you vote up Platinum? Thank you.
For you to brush off down votes:
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!
Hello, Jada - thank you for welcoming me.
Thank you, John - good to see you here!
I am very slow again - about a week off-line, and more than 1'000 mails and messages waiting as a result - ouch - lol.
How can "anonymous" people vote down your friendly message?
Can this help
to brush off the down votes?
Good to know - I hope that some friends will do some "brushing off" - lol.
Have a great week-end.
Lol - there's a lot to catch up with!

Furthermore, can you vote up Platinum? Thank you so much (see above).
