So Happy I Found This!

As an American who has had an on-again off-again relationship with trying to learn the French Language, I’m so happy to have found this app! Now I can watch so many of the great classics of French cinema and be able to watch them any time to help me practice my French.

This app has everything you could want: action, comedy, romance and more.

I wish I had it around when I was in high school trying to learn French! So happy I found this!

C’est Bon!
