Ma Liberté par Georges Moustaki

Ma liberté,longtemps je t’ai gardée, comme une perle rare,

Ma liberté,C’est toi qui m’as aidé à larguer les amarres.

On allait n’importe où, on allait jusqu’au bout des chemins de fortune,

On cueillait en rêvant une rose des vents sur un rayon de lune.

Ma liberté,devant tes volontés mon âme était soumise,

Ma liberté,je t’avais tout donné ma dernière chemise.

Et combien j’ai souffert pour pouvoir satisfaire toutes tes exigences,

j’ai changé de pays,j’ai perdu mes amis pour gagner ta confiance.

Ma liberté,tu as su désarmer mes moindres habitudes,

Ma liberté,toi qui m’as fait aimer même la solitude.

Toi qui m’as fait sourire quand je voyais finir une belle aventure,

Toi qui m’as protégé quand j’allais me cacher pour soigner mes blessures.

Ma liberté,pourtant je t’ai quittée une nuit de décembre,

J’ai déserté les chemins écartés que nous suivions ensemble.

Lorsque sans me méfier les pieds et poings liés je me suis laissé faire,

Et je t’ai trahie pour une prison d’amour et sa belle geôlière.(bis)

Methods to Learn French for Teenagers with Gil

The approaches

The Communicative and Action Oriented Approach is based on your most immediate and practical needs. It will help you to practice French as it is spoken in real life by French speakers. The inductive-deductive method will be also used to understand more difficult points of grammar through concrete and illustrating examples.

Learn from your mistakes

Mistakes are the best material to learn and progress quickly. They shade light on what has to be improved. They are of the most positive relevance to your apprenticeship and Gil will help you to take the greatest advantage of them when they will appear.

Full skills development

All your skills for French will slowly be developed from the very beginning. Reading, writing, listening, pronunciation, speaking, and intellectual capacities for grammar will be ignited. Speaking and listening will have the priority for complete and high beginners.
