I'm always interested to know where my readers are from originally and where they live now. Please take a moment to vote in this informal poll.

I live in Canada and French is one of our two official languages. More and more French is being taught in schools at all levels. The province Of Quebec has by far the most French speaking people in Canada.

I’m an American living in Morocco and find your site extremely helpful. Thanks!

[ I'm curious about the questions asking if readers are French...hard for me to imagine that a native French speaker would use the site.]

. . . . . . . . . .

As you can see in the poll results, there are quite a few native French speakers here. Most of them use the site “backwards” in order to learn English, but some are teachers looking for help explaining what they know intuitively, and a few are here because they love their language and enjoy reading a non-native speaker’s take on it.

I lived Paris France for 7 years and subsequently moved to the U.S. where I studied French Literature at the University of California UCSD. I must say taking French Literature as a subject helped me immensely with understanding the french language.

I am a 65 year old student of French living in America. We have friends who have a Maison Du village in the South of France where we visit each year for several weeks. I have been with you for about three years and find each lesson valuable. Many thanks. Keep it up,

I am Spanish, I have visited France several times, but I do and have lived in the United States of America the great Majority of my life. I am however, of French stock. I love the French language and of course it’s food and and people. I want so much to be fluent in French, but alas, it does not come easy to me.
Thank you for giving me this great opportunity to to learn some French on your website.

I am another 65 year old living in the U.S. I married a French woman many years ago. We go to France every year (Loire Valley) and enjoy extended visits with her large family, none of whom speak English. My son also married a French woman and we speak French when visiting with them.

(13) Angela says:

My partner is French and lives in France. He doesn’t speak English. I’m not fluent in French yet, but I’ll be moving over there to be with him permanently very soon. He wants me to teach him English so that will be my first challenge in France!

I myself am from Northern Ireland, which is on the island of Ireland but not part of the country called Ireland, instead part of the United Kingdom. I love languages so this website and the Spanish one too are amazing for helping me in my studies.

(15) Fay says:

I live in Scotland, near Edinburgh, in a small seaside town called Dunbar, which is twinned with Lignieres, in Cher, central France. I find this site very useful in learning French, so that I can better appreciate the culture and warm hospitality of the Lignieres jumelage when we next visit to France.

Thanks for all your hard work Laura.

I’m Japanese, live in Tokyo, and learning French. I have lived in England, and recently got in touch with my ex-roommate through Facebook. She speaks very good English but her comments are mostly in French, the language I know nothing about! So I just wanted to know a bit about it. Your site helps me lots. Thanks, Laura!
