๐ŸŽ™๏ธ Guadeloupe and French tongue twisters

“It’s fully part of France, but it’s completely detached”.

That’s how this week’s guest describes her island home Guadeloupe, which is 100 percent French even though it’s in the Caribbean.

Yes, here comes Laura K Lawless, an American teacher of the French language who lives 6,750km from Paris in what’s known as a DomTom.

We talk about about the island, the French language, and I go through the spin cycle on a few of her tongue twisters.

You can read along here:

  • Le ver vert va vers le verre vert.
  • As-tu รฉtรฉ ร  Tahiti?
  • Un chasseur sachant chasser chasse son chien.

Read more of Laura’s tongue twisters here.

Language lovers should hang around at the end for a classic Corey Story, where he reveals how a very French-sounding word came from………. THE RUSSIANS!

Follow Laura K Lawless and her site Lawless French here, and book tours with Mr Corey Frye here.

PS: Here are two photos from Laura: Pointe des Chรขteaux and the beach northwest of it, which is called Anse ร  Plume, both of which she mentioned in the episode.

PPS: While I had no idea about the sewer museum of Paris, this has since changed. Stay tuned for a smelly episode soon.

  1. I wouldn’t mind either for an entire episode about language! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thank you so much guys for all your good ideas and sense of humour! Can you picture me bursting out laughing in the middle of crowded Martin Place in Sydney? Well, people must think I am crazy but I don’t care since listening to these episodes just makes me happy ๐Ÿ™‚ Cheers!
