Website with online activities to learn French with videos, including video clips, interactive exercices, forum discussions, pronunciation tutorials, grammar section and other activities. Four versions are available: French, English, German and Spanish.
The site was undergoing maintenance when I visited it, and a lot of material was therefore unavailable. I was able however to visit the section on phonetics which was quite informative. The tutorial on how to pronounce the French "r" for instance had tips that I had never encountered before (where to locate the r, how similar it is to other English consonants, holding your tongue...). I can't wait to try those tips in class on Monday!
Most of the pages can only be seen with internet explorer which is a bit restrictive. Also, the videos took a very long time to unload, which can discourage even the most patient viewer... Would it be possible to reduce the size of these videos without affecting their quality?

I'm a french teacher and I recommand this site to my students because it's a good opportunity to listen to authnetic french students speaking very naturally. It's a nice site for beginners with a lot of things to do and to learn;

I use this site because I think videos are one of the best ways of learning a foreign language (unless you go and visit the place of course!). But you need to speak some French though (the videos are not really for the first level, except some of them)
