The Internet has become a very useful resource for learners and teachers, especially those who are learning or teaching French. At your fingertips, you and/or your students could take a virtual tour of Le Louvre or view Paris, the City of Lights, via a live web cam. Online multilingual dictionaries which give you the sound files to assist in the pronunciation of words and sentences are very common and useful. Live newscasts, podcasts, blogues, wikis, etc. give students and teachers unlimited opportunities to communicate in French.

Here you will find a collection of websites that are pertinent to learners and teachers of French as a second language. If you know of any other sites which you use and you find worthwhile in your working with the French language or in your teaching of the French language, please forward them to camillas@mun.ca.
