Many millions of people around the world want to improve their French. Are you one of them?

Something that will entertain you while you learn? Learn French without even realising it? Something that over fifteen thousand people have downloaded already – and loved? Look no further than Learn French With Jokes.
Learn French With Jokes contains 100 jokes in easy French and there is vocabulary support for the more difficult words. For example:
Le professeur : Où habite Dieu ?
Le petit garçon : Je crois qu’il habite dans notre salle de bains.
Le professeur : Pourquoi penses-tu cela ?
Le petit garçon : Et bien parce que mon père frappe tous les matins à la porte de notre salle de bains et dit : « Mon Dieu, es-tu toujours dedans ? »
frapper= to knock
dedans = inside
