French: A Language Primer (0:29)
Abstract Set in Marseille, a coastal jewel and the second-most-populous city in France, this program explores the urban landscape with the help of youthful guides-revealing the meanings and usages of numerous French words, phrases, and expressions. Viewers are shown, among other things, a bustling flea market, a fitness education festival (including tai chi and American football!), and a colorful seafood market. A great learning tool that mixes fun, facts, and real-world situations to reinforce language comprehension.
