These basic phrases will get you through introducing yourself, telling your name, and what nationality your are. Soon I will make some exercises for this lesson. I don't think that there is that much explaination needed to learn how to use tese things. Just whatever you need just use it. These things are great to learn and they are not that hard and when you go to another country or somewhere where they speak french these are very good to know .
