Grape way to learn French

I once had the humiliating experience of working alongside a professional grape picker. By lunchtime he had covered stacks more rows than me.

It is a great bonding exercise and a great polisher-up of rusty French.

The next step is to join the fête committee, where your muscles will always be welcome.

In the meetings, you will quickly pick up whole sets of expressions, which will progressively join themselves up into complete sentences et voilà! Tu commences à posséder la langue!
