Today I used this app, and I thought I’d share it with you French learners: Le Conjugueur.

This app has a free version (with ads) and a payante version without ads (0,79€), but both have the same content. Neither of them need the internet!! and it’s available for Android, iOS, Windows, Blackberry!!

So what’s this app? It has all the conjugations of French verbs, at all tenses and moods, and has variations of the same verb (e.g. questions, feminine agreements, and even alternative conjugations for some verbs).

But it also has grammar rules!!! you can find some grammar rules at the end of a table (here I showed you the verb avoir), but on the main page, if you press the menu button (sorry this is the Android version) you can find the GRAMMAR RULES page, as shown on the last pic.

Finally, there’s also an online version of it here: leconjugueur.lefigaro.fr

If I’m using it, as a French native, no doubt you guys will want to try it!

One of the things that is really notable about Moscow and yet not many people outside Russia know about, is how gorgeous the Moscow metro is.

These photos? That’s what the metro stations look like.

Yeah.

They’re called the “People’s palaces of Moscow” or else “Underground palaces,” and they were built during the Soviet era on the Communist idea that art and beauty should belong to the people rather than only being available in the houses of nobles.

These photos show just some of the metro’s attractions. There are many more mosaics, statues, etc, placed throughout.

And the metro is always this clean.

In addition to being beautiful, it is incredibly functional. It gets you pretty much everywhere in Moscow, and the trains run at intervals of every three minutes or less. At peak times, they run every 90 seconds. You never have to worry about missing a train, because the next one will come almost immediately.

Not always of course. In the late evening or early morning hours, you may have to wait as long as five whole minutes for a train. They’re also super easy to navigate.

We Russians are pretty proud of our metro system.

Language Map: Europe according to languages spoken. I enjoy the fact that the center of Iceland is an anti-language void (that and it’s a “little” glacial). I swear, that country’s fuel is composed purely of bad-assery and black licorice.
