Having worked for more than 40 years as a specialist for steel bridges and hydraulic steel structures at the Dutch Ministry of Transport, my wife and I moved to the French countryside, where most of our friends are French and English. I had my first French lessons at elementary school and afterwards at grammar school. My wife is also doing Frantastique and we both love it, as we feel more comfortable and without noticing, we learn a lot. We love the stories and miss them during the weekends!— Han L.
