This site was obviously made by someone with attention to detail and a lot of
creativity. It's definitely geared towards someone with a working knowledge of
French and NOT a beginner. Having said that, as a beginner myself, I found it
interesting and could pick out certain phrases. However, it would be virtually
impossible for a French I student to solve the mystery without a LOT of luck! :)

Technical Remarks:

VERY easy to navigate!
