Hi.How do you do?.Today I 'm going to answer at the question:what famous person, dead or alive, would you meet ?
I'm french and I talk you about a famous french actress. Her name is Isabelle Huppert.She is a french but also international actress.She is alive and she is born in 1953 at Paris.She has an impressive carrier: 133 movies,12 rewards.She is in the list of nominees for actress in a leading role with Ruth Negga, Nathalie Portman,Emma Stone and Meryl Streep for the Oscars 2017.
She principally has played in dramatics, but also in romantics movies and comedies.
The greatest french director have make movies with her:Claude Chabrol,Maurice Pialat,Godard...But she has also an international carrer:Cimino,Wajda,Ferreri,Losey.
In 2009 she chaired the jury of festival de Cannes.
She is also a great actress in theater.
I should be very shy if iImeet her but I should say her that I like her because she is a great actress but also because through all its roles she defends a positive and strength picture of women even if they are criminals or mad.
Her acting is so subtl and very profound . Go to see her !
Thanks

i agree. i love it even she looks like sometimes "cold" and distant

I prefer listen french songs but dance on english songs !

Hello everyone, I'm french, and I learn English for three years.
It's difficult for me to understand English words and sentence because I haven't a good ear for it.
It's difficult listen English songs too, but listen elementary-podcasts help me a lot.
I learned English with Babbel for one year but I think learning with British Council is more advantageous.
Best regards.

Hello everyone,

Furthermore, singing in English since i was young learnt me a lot: expressions, vocabulary, pronunciation....I think that it's a very good way to improve his English!

It's depend, sometime I prefer song in English sometime in my maternal language, French.  It's depend on the music style. For example, I prefer rock in English.
