Hi there,I really facinated this video. Paris is a fabulous city which I'd like to come in the future. :")...

I have never been to Paris.It's a quite good city,.I have heard a lot about Eiffel Tower.I don't know much about French dishes.I like to speak French,it's a good language.

I am aware of such places of interest in Paris as Louvre, Tour Eiffel, Moulin Rouge, Grand opera, Orsay, Notre Dame de Paris, Mon-Martr. I have eaten French cuisine in Nice also in a Russian restaurant in Moscow Jan- Jak. I have tasted a lot of French dishes, for example croissons, various fish dishes, calamari, mussel, oyster, cochlea, cheeses, salads, soups. From all soups I liked most Norman soup.
With respect,

Thank you so much for this resources. I love word on the street. I would like to ask one question: what is the name of the song at 00:28 seconds? I really like it but I can't find it.
I never been to Paris, but my brother has and he told me amazing things about the city. And like Steven he had some troubles , because he doesn't speak french, only spanish and english.
Best  regards,

Thanks for your kind words about the series.
As far as I know, all he songs used in Word on the Street are special TV music, which is not available to the public. Sorry about that!
Best wishes,
