This is my first podcast in a serie introducing the Chinese culture and language to people who are eager to know about this country and its people. On each episode, I will talk about interesting things in history, literature, customs, and tradition and how these things connect or disconnect with today's life. I will also introduce one word or two in each podcast and discuss how to use them in contexts. And I'm thinking about guest speakers, jingling in traditional Chinese music, and mixing other things as going along, so I don't bore my audience with my voice. =)

When it comes to verb forms, it's always the same problem: lack of speed. You understand the tense, and when you write, you can eventually put it together. But when you speak, you stumble, hesitate, have to stop to think and "write it" in your head... It's very frustrating. These French Verb Drills are designed to help you memorize the verb forms, and the way they are pronounced in French today. The aim is not to explain the tenses, nor to help you figure out how to construct them, but to help you gain speed when it comes to saying that verb form. Make sure you first listen to the intro to make the best use of these verb drills. Transcripts, additionnal drills, and more audio material are available at FrenchToday.com (by the author of LearnFrenchInBoston.com).
