I've been working on my French skills over the last year. Some of my tools are watching French movies, news in French and listening to French Music. I've got occasional podcasts also but I find them to be not nearly as fun. My french is better when written and more understood when read.
My friend Charlie introduced me to my new fav French girl, Camille. This is her 'Money Note'. She uses her voice to make cool sounds and incorporates them into her tracks. C'est fantastique!! My other favorites are Yelle and Carla Bruni.
