French Language Game: Je cherche...



Quick French language Game: Je cherche... - I'm looking for...
Play this quick online game to learn and practice 17 useful French phrases as part of a mini-story.
Daniel is looking for his friend's place in Aix-en-Provence.
He asks a passerby how to get to the street his friend lives on.
Say the French OUT LOUD after the speaker! It's a great way to improve your pronunciation!
You may know already the meaning of the words, but saying them fluently in a full sentence takes some practice.
This you can do by clicking on the French sentence as often as you want, and by imitating the intonation speaker.
A trick I really like is to say the phrase or sentence along with the speaker, in a sense "shadowing" the sounds.
Our games are for mid-to-high Beginners who want to learn and review conversational French.
