Oh la la!

You're sitting in a Parisian café, sipping your espresso, when suddenly – you lock eyes with a beautiful stranger. You feel a small shiver run down your spine as flirtatious energy flits between the two of you. Will one of you make a move? You muster up all your courage, and prepare to approach them – but after "bonjour," what will you say?
Here are a couple of options guaranteed to charm. ;)

Vous avez des yeux magnifiques.

(Vooz av-VAY dez yoo man-nee-FEEK)
You have beautiful eyes.
A perfect opening line. A sincere compliment can go a long way!

Je peux vous offrir un verre?

(Juh poh vooz off-REER uhn ver?)
Can I buy you a drink?
The universal gesture of romance: buying someone a beverage. It's got the added benefit of giving you a built-in opportunity to get to know each other.

Vous êtes célibataire? Mais comment est-ce possible?

(Vooz ett say-lee-ba-TAIR? May COM-mont ess pos-SEE-bl?)
You're single? But how's that even possible?
After you've determined that they don't currently have a partner, flatter them by letting them know how impossibly attractive you find them.

J'ai envie de t'embrasser.

(Jhay en-VEE de tom-brass-SAY)
I'd like to kiss you.
When the moment is right, there's nothing that gets someone's heart beating faster like letting your eyes momentarily drop to their mouth, then looking them right in the eyes and telling them you want to kiss them. Très sexy!
Et voilà – now you know how to draguer ("drag-GAY"; pick someone up) in French! Bon courage! ;)
If you'd like to know how to say other flirty phrases, just let me know! :)

Paris- the city of Love
Paris, the City of Light (la Ville Lumière) and Capital of Fashion, it is home to the world's finest and most luxurious fashion designers and cosmetics, such as Chanel No.5, Christian Dior, Yves Saint-Laurent, Guerlain, Lancôme, L'Oréal, Clarins, etc. A large part of the city, including the River Seine, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. "Paris - "the city of Love" is just a lie that the French aims to attract more tourists into this city", during a dinning with my French roommate, who is from Southern of France. Whether it is true or not, I would recommend you to travel to Paris with friends or other partners. There are 2 reason for it: 1st is not to feel lonely in this romantic city :), 2nd to avoid all those scam that set up everywhere in this beloved city :) . How to get to Paris when you are in Europe? There are plenty of cheap airlines in Europe that you can take advantage of : Jetair, RyanAir, Blue1, so on and so forth. But for me the best way to travel in Europe and to get to Paris is by train :) (Eventhough the TVG; express train system in France is kind of pricy). There is not much good hostels in Paris, so it is better that you book in advance, or try Airbnb, or couchsurfing. For me I did try couchsurfing when I am in this city, and the experience was amazing :). It will take me day to write about my travel experience in Paris. So if you have any questions or need any tips, just send me a message. I will hit you right back ;D !

Should France Turn off the Internet?
News Community Discussion time! This one relates to all the crazy things that have been happening over the past several weeks. After the Paris bombing, an investigation began. May suggested that the terrorists communicated through Playstation (though that turned out not to be true). But we do know they used the internet as a tool to communicate. And ISIS uses online platforms to recruit and train. After the bombings the french police even went out of their way to add restrictions to the internet in France, stating that it was a threat to the country. But, French Prime Minister, Manuel Valls turned down the ban. "A ban of Wi-Fi is not a course of action envisaged." "Internet is a freedom, is an extraordinary means of communication between people, it is a benefit to the economy," Valls added.

What are the benefits/problems of having the internet limited?
5 of the Most Important Reactions to the French Terrorist Attacks
2 days ago France experienced a great tragedy... Terrorists across the city killed over 130 people. With the incredibly awful events that happened this weekend, it's easy to see the ripple effect of reactions. People around the world reacted to this event strongly. And here are the most important ones... according to me. France The country effected by this tragedy is making some really big steps. Not only are they stepping up security in the city, around the country, but they are also launching airstrikes on ISIS. Recently they launched fighter jets in their biggest raids in Syria to date, targeting the Islamic State’s stronghold in Raqqa. Over 20 bombs were dropped. Obama Obama held a press conference after the event. And evoking thoughts and feelings of the 9/11 tragedy the same thoughts change sympathy: "We’ve gone through these kinds of episodes ourselves. And whenever these kinds of attacks happened, we’ve always been able to count on the French people to stand with us. They have been an extraordinary counterterrorism partner, and we intend to be there with them in that same fashion." Essentially: America stands with France. Social Media Is it just me or is your Facebook feed flooded with images, thoughts, and pictures related to the. In My twitter feed is also blown up with the hashtags. Three themes I've seen: The Pray for Paris People - these people are the vast majority, sending sentiments of sympathy. The 'If Only' People - these are the people that have to bring about another point and use France as a example. If only they had guns, if only they had better security, if only we had stopped ISIS earlier. The Other Issue People - similar to the if only people, these social media people have thoughts on another issue that they use Paris to bring up. What about the refugees! What about the attack in Beirut! What about... There also seems to be a big change in profile pictures. (Thanks Facebook!) What are your thoughts on the profile picture change? Anonymous A hacker group, Anonymous came forward stating they are officially in War with ISIS. Ok, so I'm normally not a fan of hackers but they seem like they are terrifying. And many news organizations are intrigued by their decision. To date these self-proclaimed "hacktivists" claim to have destroyed 149 Islamic State-linked websites and flagged roughly 101,000 Twitter accounts and 5,900 propaganda videos. Many people around the world are questioning this groups capabilities, but who knows? It sure is fun to get behind a group of masked hackers. Helpers Around the World A famous Mr. Rogers quote is, "When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, 'Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.'" So where are the helpers from the Paris Attacks? Red Cross went into full swing helping and providing medical assistance for those in the disaster. The French National Blood Service took donations outside of France. Taxi cabs in Paris offered free rides home. Little helpers all over the city put up signs and candles. #PorteOuverte was the hashtag used to reach out and house those Parisians all over the world. And these won't be the only reactions. I'm sure we will experience more in the future. And we have our own reaction. @ButterflyBlu @InPlainSight @carenabobo @Animaniafreak @alywoah @gabbycalzada @LeticiaMendez @vonchio @LunaCordero @ImUrBestFriend @netchtiBates @fallenangeljess @kat121 @MarjorieSound @vonchio @kanghyobin @KalyanMadoori @starsun7 @CreeTheOtaku @shantalcamara @christianmordi @KathyCrew @TessStevens @TingThang @CassidyRoush @jorekawaii What was your reaction to the French terrorist attacks?

How To Learn A New Language At Home
I've been trying to improve my French recently, and came across these awesome YouTubers called DamonandJo. They have self-taught themselves nearly 6 languages! I believe they speak French, Spanish, Portugese, Italian, German, and of course English! You can either watch the video above (which I suggest cause they have the BEST sense of humor) or check out their tips below: 1. Follow Famous YouTubers in the language you want to learn! There are tons of youtubers in other languages, and often if they are famous enough, there will be english subtitles. Listen to them to hear real people speaking the language rather than a text book! They're usually super entertaining too so it helps :) 2. Follow those YouTubers or famous people on twitter so you see that language each day! The easiest way to get used to a foreign language is to see it all the time and this really helps! 3. Change your phone/facebook/etc language to your desired language! Since you probably already know where everything is in your phone or facebook, you wont be confused and you'll learn a ton of new vocab! 4. Listen to audio books in the language you want!!! Audible has a ton of foreign language books. Try starting with a book you already know well (like Harry Potter for me - I'm trying to read that in Korean right now...) and listen throughout your day! 5. Sign up for foreign magazines or newsletters! Or even better download their app in another language! For example, my boyfriend gets push notification from Le Monde which is a french newspaper :) Even if you only read the headline, its practice. 6. Try cooking a meal using a recipe in a different language! You start to learn that a lot of words you actually already know (for example, sauté means the same thing in french and in korean bokkeum (like bokkeumbap) means fried! so literally "fried rice!" 7. Watch TV shows in the language Duh!!!! 8. Talk to yourself and dont be afraid! Practice speaking whenever you can, even to people who are strangers! be brave! What languages are you trying to learn?!
