Yes, Bill and with great thanks.
It plays just fine on any DVD player and PC.

I can fully recommend Bill Wray's editing facilities. cheers

We shall watch this next week at the Lycée and it will be such a big help to the students.

They loved the teen mags too Bill.
I gave them to them to borrow. The French girlies (and one boy..... Question) snapped them up.

All I need now are some old copies of garden railway mags and .... I'll get them properly educated and converted twice!

Glad to hear it. Very Happy I'm not surprised the girls went gaga over the magazines - make-up, hairstyles, boys, etc. Some things transcend nationality.

I'd keep an eye on that boy, though. affraid

In French Quentin is pronounced as 'conta-n' (the 'n' is nasal).
When I called him 'Quintin' as in English some of the other kids sniggered and said he was gay.

That was great because I spent half an hour embarrassing them on the true and developed meanings of the word.

BTW I have lost my voice completely.

Shouting like a loon in French for 6 hours today 'tais toi' ou 'taisez vous' for 32 screaming 15 year olds.

I must be mad to do this job! I've been there 3 weeks already......

I had to tell 2 girls off for kissing (each other.....yes) in the corridor yesterday.....but I did wait a while first. Laughing
