This video clip can teach students about a really famous French singer from the 60s – Nino Ferrer, Gaston the very popular French cartoon character and then some good French words. Nino Ferrer could take ordinary things in French life and make them hits so he is a critical part of French musical pop culture development. The music is very dated but the song goes along at a pace students can follow and they will even start to sing it. It is part of our telephone conversations unit. The words are here.
