People speaking french

…is one of those little things that remind me life is good.

Escuchar a alguien hablar frances

…es una de esas pequeñas cosas que me hacen recordar lo buena que es la vida.

French is just such a pretty language to listen to. I am currently taking my second French class, but sadly I can’t say I speak much.

What I love about French is how rhythmic it is. And how pretty the French accent makes words sound.

I just recently watched Les Parapluies de Cherbourg, a French movie in which the characters sing every single word that comes out of their mouth. It sounds terribly obnoxious doesn’t it? But it isn’t! If there is a language that was meant to be sung, that language is French.

If you haven’t seen the movie Les Parapluies de Cherburg and you are in the mood for a little romance and a lot of singing, you should watch it. The plot of the movie is your typical: poor boy loves high society girl, girl’s mom doesn’t like poor boy because, well, he’s poor, rich boy likes girl, mom wants girl to be with rich boy,poor boy gets girl pregnant, poor boy is sent to war, girl marries rich boy…ok, maybe not so typical. But not a new plot either. Anyway, the movie does offer good singing voices, awesome sets decorated with colorful patters, fantastic outfits (gotta love the late 50’s and early 60’s), good acting and…you guessed it! People speaking French.
