I have a question regarding french relative clauses that I just can't figure out by myself. Here two examples:
Ces trois couleurs ce sont celles que l'on retrouve dans le tableau de Delacroix.
Elle a été créée après les décolonisations des années 1950 et 1960, comme vous pourrez le voir
dans cet extrait vidéo qui raconte l'histoire de la francophonie.
Can anyone explain to me 1) whether the article in the highlighted section is obligatory 2)if so, why and when it is obligatory 3) if not, why it is used and what difference it makes compared to leaving it out
Hi! I'm developing an application to learn various languages from ground up: starting with alphabet and continuing into sentence building and writing. I need feedback and I would love to give everyone codes for the full version so you don't have to watch ads. I try to post updates weekly adding fresh content and new games. It has quite a few cool features:
- Various languages available for offline learning: Thai, Russian, Korean, Spanish, French (more languages on the way!)
- Alphabet and spelling activities – build the foundations of your language knowledge.
- Grammar drills – practice useful grammar structures for daily communication.
- Real-life conversation examples – be ready to speak while go to another country.
- Language tips - listen to step-by-step explanations and real-life examples that you can use right away.
- Lesson dictionary - you don't need to look for a dictionary to find a word you don’t know.
- Fun randomly generated games and quizzes to track your progress - revise and improve your language skills in fun games that are generated uniquely each time you play them.
- Dictionary - browse through all the words with examples from all the courses to revise them.
- Favorite words - add words from lessons to revise them!
- Achievements and progress - track your improvements and progress easily.
- Frequent updates – extend your skills with more topics covered and brand-new games.

There's this song which has a sample in it. (It appears at 1:01)
I usually find these samples by transcribing the words, but I could really use some help with this, because I'm not sure what language is this.
I can hear some English words, but I'm not sure about them either.
If anyone could recognise the language, it would be a big help.

What does "faite" mean?
What does "faîte" mean?
What is the difference between the two if any?
Is there any cultural significance?
Does either word have any slang or connotations associated?
What does each word make someone feel? Is it just a basic everyday word or is one rarely used or for a special occasion?
Bonjour à tous! I am finally pursuing my long-held goal of learning French - I can't afford to take classes though so am looking for materials I can use to teach myself. Are there any books/multimedia learning packs that other people have used that they can recommend? I will most likely use this in combination with an app like Duolingo, but I have a background in language learning (a bachelors degree in German and Russian) and know from this that I value resources that also teach grammar rules. An audio element so that I can check my pronunciation is also important. Any tips anyone can offer would be much appreciated!
(PS - I live in the UK, so I guess I'm on the lookout for books that will be available to me here!)
