comment How to say “Thank you for calling me back” in French?
Thanks @sinsedrix, i've edited the question to make it clearer - this is specifically when you've asked someone to call you back and what you say to them to thank them for doing that.

comment Que répondre à « bonne soirée » ou « bonne journée »?
Merci @Brennan - j'ai entendu "pareillement" (c'est peut-être autre chose?) dans l'Haute Savoie.

comment Are there good tools for learning to speak French?
Thanks @thei - i actually mentioned that speaking is the best tool but i live in a fairly isolated part of France - the skype-chat idea is something i'll investigate. I tried children's audio books (Le Petit Chaperone Rouge) but found it hard to follow with all the "put-on" voices! Maybe i'll give it another go now i'm more advanced... :)

comment Are there good tools for learning to speak French?
Thanks for your response @Gilles - i agree that it's not necessarily "on-topic" but it's certainly useful (to me anyway!). As a (i guess :)) Francophone i can also see why it's not useful to you - but useful to other non-native speakers? Happy to delete it if the consensus is that it doesn't belong here. :)

@Raphink: So in "On n'a plus d'argent" would not pronounce the 's'?
