We can learn about artist production, agencies actuality, brands evolution.. (news part). You also have a TV, an award and a shop part. It's really interactive because of the graphic design aspect of the website which is very elaborate with some bright colors points in the middle of a black background.

Hello everybody !

http://www.legorafi.fr/

I choose the website above because I think that is really funny and we need to decompress and chilling as now that we have a lot of homework. Is a critic and satiric website about daily newspapers subjects , we can find too false information in social, politic, economic ….

For example today we find in the website “ 8 of 10 taxi drivers use Uber for relaxing” and now the creators of site give some Gorafi news at Canal +. When we hear stupid information we think if is not a Gorafi news. So if you have five free minutes go to Gorafi and smile a little.

My link is Konbini. http://www.konbini.com/en/

This one is for United Kingdom, but you can also choose for France, USA or Mexico.
This a good website for news. It can be about cinema, games, actuality (French, English,..) photography, specific topics,... It talks about almost everything and the tons used is nice, plesant or sarcastic.
I'm going on this website almost every days checking news and cool stuff.

Enjoy!

www.charentelibre.fr

Hello Everybody !!

I choose this website, because it's a local newspaper. A lot of "charentais" read this newspaper everyday. Honestly, this is not the world's best newspaper but it's interresting to read the last news, or the last gossip (I must be realistic). More seriously, if approximations are removed (speciality of CL) it's a simple newspaper who speak about local life.

I believe this website can be interresting for the "non charentais" Razz

Bye Bye.

Hello Everyone,

If I had to choose a website to talk about, I will choose Interpals.
If you have already clicked on the link you will see that it's not the best website in terms of technology and design, BUT interpals is a very interesting online social media where connect with people from all around the globe and that can help you learn new languages... for free.
I have been on interpals for almost 8 years now, and it helped me enrich my english and french, and is helping me with my spanish now.
how does it work? it's very simple... you create a Profile and you talk a little bit about yourself. then you add the languages you master and the ones you are learning. the site's algorithm will suggest people who are willing to help you with your languages and will suggest you for other people as well.
Some freaks might think that this is an online dating, but it's not. so you might get messages like "may you allow me to bow down and kiss your feet, Yara? Because you look just stunnin"... ugh
Some other serious people will be also searching for travel buddies, so if you're interested in that you should just add it in your profile and they query search will find you! yay! and also don't forget to post an album (if you want) about the places that you visited. this way the travel buddies will believe you.
I started my postcard collection here and met very nice people. i hosted 2 people from interpals in lebanon and i have 3 constant good friends because of this site.

i put links of my profile and albums if you want to check them.
(i hope this one will be posted)

Here you are my web site link: http://materia.nl/

This web site is like a material’s network. The MATERIA’s objective is to share with us the most innovative new materials, the manufacture process and the technological advances. The main purpose is to let us know the different possibilities in the future, to give us the knowledge to solve marketing, product, process, ecological problems by focusing on the materials.

In this web site you are going to find all kind of materials organized by multiple categories. For instance, you can search them by material’s group (ceramic, plastic, wood, metal) or by material’s properties (fire resistance, acoustics, weight). Additionally, you are going to find several of articles related to the future concepts, technical evolutions and products’ innovation.

I really love the fact you can find current and upcoming events all around the world. As well, I find very interesting that you have real brand list of providers with the contact information and the specifications of the material they provide. This web site make me think about the way we can anticipate or utilize these opportunities as an industrial designer or a marketer given that our field is often prospective.

Enjoy it!!

Hi John ! And Hi buddies ! So I chose a really specific type of site, a lot of people don't know about it or just don't care, because they don't have any interest in the topics that are stated in it. It is http://www.koreaboo.com/

Well, it might be "unexpected" for some of you to know that I am a big fan of Asian culture Very Happy Cool Especially Japanese and Korean culture. And I love Kpop ! lol (Okay, for those of you who don't know, Kpop is a musical genre originating from South-Korea which is d**n good)
So yeah, in order to feed this passion I need to get informed of it. Koreaboo is an english language website that shares viral korean news. It helps me to be informed whether if the groups I like, for example, plans to come in France or plans to do their comeback soon and so on.
Well, this is just a site where I release stress and just take a break of french society lol! .
I thought it'd be great to share it, for those of you who are interested.

There's also another website that I visit a lot. http://www.ajalt.org/english/online/
I've learned Japanese for three years and this language needs to be often practiced if you don't want to forget it and also if you want to maintain/improve the level you already have. This is really useful because you can practice the oral, the grammar and verbs and also the "kanji". And it is for all levels. I wanted to share it for those who studies Japanese this year, it really helped me a lot.

I recommend a website to you where we can learning English !!! John, I'm sure that you will like it. It is created by the WFP (World Food Programme) called freerice, for appeal to everyone to pay attention to the problem of food. There are a lot of subjects, english, math, chemistry etc. And in each subjects, there are the questions. You can choose one subject and answer the questions. When you answer one question and the answer is corret, you donate 10 grain for the people who are starving. So why not try to anwer a question?

I choose to present 500px. This is a social network of photography, so you can post or discover pictures. I love this website because it allows to discover new photographers in several areas (art , concert, food, journalism, landscape , sports, architecture , portrait…). My favorites are landscape and portrait photography. Thanks to this I discover many photographer that I follow now and who are a great source of inspiration for my photos. Furthemore, you have the EXIF for each photos (that’s the camera setting) so you can learn to adjust your camera when you start photography.
There are great photos and you can travel just by looking at the pictures.

Here's the link : https://500px.com

I chose this website of article riding because it is a site where I returns me regularly to buy my products. In angouleme specialized stores become scarce and products are really nil! This website is not really beautiful but we find there easily for what we look thanks to the various themes of classification(ranking).
I don't think that somebody here is interested in this website because nobody practises the riding in the class. But if you know somebody who practices it and that to look you for a present to be offered to him/her for Christmas! Do not hesitate Wink

Here's the website i would recommend : video game website

If you are interested in having some news on the video game industry, or if you want to find a good game to offer for christmas to your boyfriend (or just offer it to me because you know that i love games), here's the website you need to make your choice. And it's not only about the critical reviews they make, this website is also full of video, report on the industry, interviews with developpers, talk shows, and deep reflexion on video games. They have a quite critical editorial line, because they're demanding on video games. They won't give a 18 out of 20 to every game just to make the producers happy. they even got black listed by Warner bros because they didn't give a good review to one of their batman games. So you can be sure by choosing this website that you will have honest and realistic ideas on the game  you want to play.
They developped a premium service, which goes from 4.99€ a month to 59.99€ for 2 years of subscription. This service allows them to make better and deeper content for the website. that's how they can create talk shows or make interviews with video game developpers. And that kind of content is not made by any other video game website in France. That's one of the thing that made me accept to pay to have access to a part of the content. they even made an interview with a lawyer that helped me doing my report for the lesson with Miss Dumas. I mean, that's awesome !
And contributing to the website by being a subscriber makes me feel that i'm part of it. Even though you're not a big fan as I am, and you just want to have news on video games, on the industry, or get some help to choose a game, I xould definitely recommend this website !
