Dear friends, I`m from Saint-Petersburg, Russia. I`m learning french. And in July I`ll be in Paris - on a 2-weeks students exchange.
After that I wish to travel a bit... but really I don`t know where to go!? what to see!?
I need an advise - what`s better to see in surroudings of Paris!? and may be someone is going to travel there too? - we can coordinate to do it together!;)

You can find a lot of other photo and video of Patricia Kaas here.

After buying HarperCollins Robert Unabridged French Dictionary (the ultimate bilingual dictionary), I want to know what is...

1) the best French Grammar book. My teacher told me that Schaum's Outline of French grammar is good, but I want to know if there is a better option. I am not familiar with Le Bon Usage and Langenscheidt Pocket French Grammar, so I need information about those books too.

2) the most concise (but complete) conjugation book. There are so many conjugation books out there, but I don't know which one to buy. I cannot find Bescherelle here (by the way, what's the difference between their « La Conjugaison pour tous » and « L'art de conjuguer » ? are they the same book?). My next option might be the "501 French Verbs".

N.B.: bilingue, monolingue, ça m'est egal
Where can I get a list of French words that are not pronounced using the typical French pronunciation rules? e.g., fils, loanwords

Can anyone recommend me a good French dictionary? I recently bought Oxford Colour French Dictionary Plus for easy English-French and French-English translation, but there might be something better and would complement it.

Size, weight, and price are not the main considerations. In fact, I would even prefer a hardbound, and I can sacrifice the price if it's worth it in the long run anyway. I would prefer to have a very useful monolingual dictionary, so that I can practice reading and learning French words in French. I am definitely not fluent but I would like to have a dictionary that I can use for a very long time, both while learning as a basic French speaker and when I eventually become more fluent.

Some have suggested:
Le Petit Larousse Illustré
Le Nouveau Petit Robert: Dictionnaire alphabétique et analogique de la langue française
Le Robert Micro

If possible, please explain your reasons and share your experiences to someone who is clueless about French dictionaries. Thanks!

Are there any other historical period dramas that are either originally in French or have been dubbed?

Amazon links / youtube / all u c / much appreciated!

Est-ce qu'il y a quelq'un que pourrait lire mon premier essai en français, et me signaler mes erreurs, svp?

Bounjour! Je m'appelle Nidya et je suis un etudiante en ecole secondaire.

For homework, I have to fill out a worksheet with words from a word bank. They must be properly conjugated, in present tense. One of the words in the word bank can be used more than once.

Can someone help me check what I have and give me clues to finish the rest? I tried really, really hard, and I'd like to know if I'm more or less right. Thanks a million!!
