Bonjour tout le monde, je m’appelle Adeyeye Jolade et je suis votre nouveau professeur de Français.

*BigGrin* I’m sure everyone is used to the usual French salutation of bonjour, let me give you the chance to translate the remaining aspect of what I said in the comments column.

The benefits of learning French language are numerous that I would have to write a post on that someday soon, I’ll just be taking the little I feel I can pass down verbally, then depending on the traffic I get on here, I might upgrade to audio and visual tutorials too.

I always tell my French students learn French with fun, don’t be rigid, and let it just flow. I hope you all have fun with me as we take some basic phrases today.
