You’re increasingly nombreux (many), day after day, to enjoy our Blog français: The French Blog !
Grâce à vous (thanks to you), more and more readers à travers le monde entiers (throughout the whole world) continue to discover the Transparent French Blog, and dramatically improve their Français skills.
To all of you who keep spreading the word to your friends, your family, and coworkers, about this blog and how exciting it is, we would like to tell you encore and encore:
Transparent actually offers you way more than just the posts that you enjoy reading nearly tous les jours here…
Oui, détrompez-vous (make no mistake about it), “Transparent is Not your Parent’s Cours de Français !“
Transparent also provides you with une experience d’apprentissage (a learning experience) that you won’t find anywhere else. The kind of experience dreamed by -but never available to!- the previous generations who wanted to learn la langue française.
Have you heard, par exemple (for example), of the “byki FRENCH” application?
You definitely should check out if you haven’t done it yet. If you’re curieux (curious) about it, just take a look for yourself at what other utilisateurs (users) have to say about it!
It’s already been available for a while on computer, and having easily converted beaucoup de fans, byki French on iPhone gives you the chance of mémoriser, ”on the go“, all sorts of new mots de vocabulaire, and allows you to use them in *real world* context, par exemple sur Tweeter!
Voici un instantané de quoi ça a l’air (Here’s a snapshot of what it looks like):
Une autre application sympa (another cool application) is called Transparent Words, to which you can facilement (easily) connect through your Facebook account. You have le choix (the choice) of either ajouter de nouveaux mots (add new words), together with un exemple of its day-to-day use, or regarder au hasard un mot (see a random word), with the option of “liking” a particular word. If your mot (word) is actually verified as correct, and if it is liked by many other Facebook users, then you’re on your way to achieve une grande célébrité, as you will earn some valuable points de réputation (reputation points)!
Another feature simple et très intéressante of our Transparent French Blog is the “Categories section.”
It allows you to browse previously published articles, selon la catégorie de votre choix (according to the category of your choice.)
- For example, in the category “Business“, if you are planning to apply for work in France, or for a French company, you can find posts showing “How To Write A Résumé in French.” Also, in the same category, you can find a post about l’affaire Kerviel (“Jerôme KERVIEL: «Traitor Trader» ou «Bouc émissaire»?“) which shook the French monde de la finance et du business (the world of finance and business.)
- In the catégorie de l’art (the art category), you can discover one of Jennie’s favorite artists (“Mon artiste français préféré“), namely Toulouse-Lautrec, or perhaps read more about the recent surprising art museum heist in Paris, not too far from la Tour Eiffel (“Une “Casse à-la-Cassel” ! (Grand “Théft” à-la-Menthe)“), worthy of a “Matrix/Ocean 13” stint!
- “Thanks for a great product and much better value than Rosetta Stone.” - Geoffrey Casey, Hawaii, USA
Finally, you should for sure take a look at the French products offered by Transparent Languages, which by far outclass the now (“stone”)aging -and unjustifiably costly!- Rosetta Stone.
