Paris – Live the Language, or Paris – De Vivre La Langue, sharply captures images and actions while displaying a watcher friendly graphics of French words displayed across the screen to describing everything being shown.

You’ll see everyday activities like shopping, as well as walking through a semi-crowded market and then needing to say excuse me, pardon, and much more.

It’s a great refresher if you’ve studied the language before as well, either on your own or through school classes, but haven’t done a great job of committing it to memory.
