Salut tout le monde!
As if I wasn’t busy enough changing diapers (don’t get me wrong, it’s the best part of being a dad ), I have decided today to start building a huge audio database of French verbs. My project is to eventually have more than 500 French verbs included in this database and conjugated at all tenses!!! Now multiply 500 (verbs) by 17 (tenses – this number is up for debate) and you should have a pretty good idea of the immensity of the project. So wish me good luck!
For now, I have compiled a wonderful list of just 10 verbs, which you can find here. Hey, we all have to start somewhere, right?
At this point, I’m not really thinking of any particular order when creating this audio database. I simply want to get as much as possible done whenever I can afford the time. But I would like you guys to tell me which verb(s) you would like to see on the list first. It can be ANY French verb you’ve encountered in class or during a conversation, or while listening to a French-speaking radio station, or on TV. I would like YOU to have a say in this database so it can be relevant to your language needs.
Let’s say, for example, I decide to work on the verb “rebrousser” (to turn around/to brush up (or back) , while you are, at the moment, very much interested in learning about “manger” (to eat). Well, it is up to you to send me a quick message to let me know that it will make more sense for you to learn this verb instead of that verb, otherwise, I may never know what your priorities are in terms of French verbs to learn.
So, I look forward to hearing from all of you. Hopefully, by next next year, you’ll have 500 reasons more to like the French language. Merci.
