Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Snow White... you know them all, don't you? That's why I picked this topic. Because you do already know the story, it is that much easier for you to understand in French. There will be 2 versions of the same tale, whenever possible; my own version, like I tell it to my daughter, which comes with a full transcript and translation available on FrenchToday.com, and the original tale, often dating back to the 18th century, hence quite more challenging. Go to FrenchToday.com for more details and more Classic French Tales and audio material (from the author of LearnFrenchInBoston.com)

While growing up, my mom was always quick to remind me to wear a half slip with my skirts. She would say “Your hap eslip!! Be sure to wear your hap eslip!!”. So I grew up thinking - the term was always “happy slip”, until I was corrected by classmates who asked me if I had a sad slip as well. Not only is it a funny phrase from the past… - but it reflects what I’d like people to feel when they watch these videos. Hoping they will “slip into happiness” while watching.
