I have a new class of beginners starting next week so we shall need to do the greetings. It is important to learn greetings in French because French speaking people like to greet each other and visitors properly. Saying hallo to people in their language is basic to making a connection. FrenchLinguisitics has a very comprehensive list of greetings which you can use in addition to your text book or laptop work. You can use this site for some quick practice to add a variation to your own. You can also go to FrenchSpanish Online and get some good basic sound practice in. The sound recording wasn’t working when I was there, but is a good feature.
