Once you can use a dictionary properly there is no limit to what you can express! You can talk about what is important to you instead of only what you have been taught in class! You will need a dictionary to get the most out of your language lessons. These are the ones we recommend:
If you look around the net, you can find them on ebay, amazon and many other sites or they are for sale in all good bookshops...don't delay!

Je chante

Horribly catchy! How many verbs can you recognise?

Sunday, 10 July 2011

Une de mes chansons favorites!

Il en faut peu pour être heureux
Vraiment très peu pour être heureux
Il faut se satisfaire du nécessaire
Un peu d'eau fraîche et de verdure
Que nous prodigue la nature
Quelques rayons de miel et de soleil.

Je dors d'ordinaire sous les frondaisons
Et toute la jungle est ma maison
Toutes les abeilles de la forêt
Butinent pour moi dans les bosquets
Et quand je retourne un gros caillou
Je sais trouver des fourmis dessous.
- Essaye c'est bon, c'est doux, oh!

Il en faut vraiment peu,
Très peu pour être heureux !
[Mowgli] - Mais oui !
[Baloo] Pour être heureux.

Il en faut peu pour être heureux
Vraiment très peu pour être heureux
Chassez de votre esprit tous vos soucis
Prenez la vie du bon côté
Riez, sautez, dansez, chantez
Et vous serez un ours très bien léché !

Cueillir une banane, oui
Ça se fait sans astuce
Aïe !
