Alright. This is the website of the global body http://www.alliancefr.org/sommaire.php3?lang=en . See what they offer. Check for global locations and view the locations in Nigeria. They usually have different classes depending on your level of French knowledge. They also offer weekdays and weekend classes and you could choose a time that fits your schedule. They do have the support of the French Government to encourage the learning of French. I suggest you pop in to one of their offices to learn more.

You can learn French during the weekends at Alliance Francaise in Yaba or Ikoyi. They would point you to where you can get learning aid from.

If I remember correctly, the class books sold in Alliance Francaise are usually sold with tapes. if they still sell them, you may want to buy and use for practice.

Iginla, do not loose interest. Try and learn how to conjugate verbs properly and also learn a lot of words and you will see that it is not that difficult. French has rules, so try and learn the rules. Also learn the standard pronunciations like oi pronounced wa, example (Moi - pronounced Mwa, toi), ou pronounced ooh, eau pronounced as oh (eau, beau) and wherever they appear, you will be able to speak them correctly. Make sure you go back and learn the Alphabets pronunciation in the correct way and then all the accents (Grave, aigu and circonflex) on e, c and other alphabets.

Use google language translation capability to translate words that you do not understand in french or translate english to french. It may not give you an entirely correct sentence, but it will point you in the right direction (Go to google home page, then click on language tools). Get a very good French dictionary like Harraps (the Large one) and listen to tapes. Do not be afraid to practice the language and be passionate about it!

Drrionelli, you did a very good job of translating it correctly.

The sentence in French should have read:

Notre amour est  plus profond que  la vie  et  plus   beau      que   l'or  ou l'argent

(Our    love   is      deeper      than  life   &  more beautiful  than  Gold  or  Money)

and not

Ntre amour ests plus profound quue lavie et plus beau que d'or et d'arqent

adewaleafolabi,  Je vous encourage à apprendre le français et l'espagnol. Ils sont des langues très intéressantes! J'apprends l'espagnol moi-même après étude du français. J'ai deja fait le Certificat II, quand j'etais au Nigéria. je parle aussi un peu de la langue portugaise. Il y a un chanteur espagnol qui s'appelle CHAYANNE. Il est un bon chanteur!

As I'm living in a country that is half french speaking and that one of my compatriots has written the best romantic song ever, I gladly post the lyrics here:

Ne Me Quitte Pas - Jacques Brel

Ne me quitte pas

Il faut oublier

Tout peut s'oublier

Qui s'enfuit deja

Oublier le temps

Des malentendus

Et le temps perdu

A savoir comment

Oublier ces heures

Qui tuaient parfois

A coups de pourquoi

Le coeur du bonheur

Ne me quitte pas (4 fois)

Moi je t'offrirai

Des perles de pluie

Venues de pays

Où il ne pleut pas

Je creuserai la terre

Jusqu'apres ma mort

Pour couvrir ton corps

D'or et de lumière

Je ferai un domaine

Où l'amour sera roi

Où l'amour sera loi

Où tu seras reine

Ne me quitte pas (4 fois)

Ne me quitte pas

Je t'inventerai

Des mots insensés

Que tu comprendras

Je te parlerai

De ces amants là

Qui ont vu deux fois

Leurs coeurs s'embraser

Je te racont'rai

L'histoire de ce roi

Mort de n'avoir pas

Pu te rencontrer

Ne me quitte pas (4 fois)

On a vu souvent

Rejaillir le feu

De l'ancien volcan

Qu'on croyait trop vieux

Il est paraît-il

Des terres brûlées

Donnant plus de blé

Qu'un meilleur avril

Et quand vient le soir

Pour qu'un ciel flamboie

Le rouge et le noir

Ne s'épousent-ils pas

Ne me quitte pas (4 fois)

Ne me quitte pas

Je ne vais plus pleurer

Je ne vais plus parler

Je me cacherai là

À te regarder

Danser et sourire

Et à t'écouter

Chanter et puis rire

Laisse-moi devenir

L'ombre de ton ombre

L'ombre de ta main

L'ombre de ton chien

Ne me quitte pas (4 fois)

no, you'll have to give it a shot several times.

practice makes perfect. lol

10x a day or more everyday till the 23rd and you'll be fine.

goodluck. i don't know what the lyrics mean but it seems like a really good song. good luck at your performance.

do you know the tune to the song?

can you sing the tune? you should be really familiar with the song before starting to practice the lyrics. but it helps to look at the lyrics sometimes when you listen to the song.

i won't advice you to look for a new song. stick to the one you have because you're already familiar with it and you only have 13 days left.

Interprete : poetic lover

Auteur : poetic lover

Compositeur : poetic lover

Année : 1999

Texte :

une larme,une perle si fragile

illumine telle une étoile,

cette image en mon ame qui

scintille,éclaire un amour de

mille flammes.

mon esprit,mes sentiments lui appartenaient,je le clame.

Que ma vie,mes rêves,mes songes, sans elle périraient

refrain:

mais au septième ciel,cette étincelle, vision d'amour remplie d'espoir

c'était à mes yeux,une merveille,ma douceur de miel

elle a brisé ma vie mon coeur

mais je veux y croire

je pense l'aimer encore

mon coeur saigne du mal qu'elle m'a fait, vole en éclats.

que la mort guide mon destin a travers les cieux.

je ne peut l'oublier je ne fait que rever, lui faire l'amour.

cette secrete alliance detruite par les dieux.

mon esprit mes sentiments lui appartenaient je le clame.

que ma vie mes rêves mes songes sans elle periraient

refrain

oh!gardien du temple des anges je t'en suplie.

donne la clé de mes souffrances.

oh! seigneur de la vie je t'en prie.

je t'implore mes louanges

une sensation étrange m'a fait don d'une magie.

la clé c'est celle d'accepter l'eternelle destinée

refrain(x2)

translation:

our love is more profound than life and more beautiful than gold or money.
