The little village of St Pierre-Du-Chemin is very special. It houses and safeguards the relics of St. Valentine. The Vatican has authenticated these relics. They have a traditional festival every year to celebrate St. Valentine’s day and the fact they are the keepers of such a special patron saint
Moi aussi! French is very widely spoken throughout the world and the video makes a very valid point . We all haves skills and expertise in so many different areas…and then we speak other languages as well. That is how it is in 2017.
Je vous souhaite une bonne et heureuse année. Merci pour le soutien de ce blog. J’en suis très reconnaissante. Club de français a partagé cette vidéo sur mon Facebook. 2017 commence bien!
You no longer have to stumble and mumble through your pronunciation of French wines at a restaurant.You no longer have to anglicise the sound to make yourself feel comfortable.This video pronounces the most common wines for you, explains the wine regions and if you are really keen you can practise the 200 odd wines on this video. It’s not just about wines, though. It’s about pronunciation and ease of speaking. Learning how to pronounce wines will automatically help you to master sounds and combinations of sounds in French. If you can get Beaujolais right you won’t have much trouble with il est beau, merci beaucoup, Elle est jolie, frais, il fait frais. The wine pronunciation will make you more at ease with your pronunciation in French.
agreenmouse.com is a site I have used in class and the language tools available for French have been very suitable for my high school students. They have learned happily and effectively with them. The site also offers teaching and learning resources for Spanish. It is not unusual these days for people to be working in two languages and learning two similar languages simultaneously. We have a need for multilingual people because of global connections and the internet. French and Spanish are good languages to learn at the same time. One of the things the site offers is a chance to connect globally with other students learning the same language as you are. You can do that as a student or teacher. Teachers, students or classes can make a video and share it with others to help them learn. it is a great opportunity for authentic learning.
Nothing like hearing real French people talking about their real French breakfast and seeing it at the same time! Miam! Miam! This way you can learn the vocabulary in context. If you are looking for vocabulary for le petit déjeuner you can find it on francaisfacile.
This recipe made me look good at the weekend. It is one of those classic, beautiful, simple but very tasty French recipes. The ingredients are easily to source in Australia except the reblochon. That is not so easy to source in South Australia so I used camembert which everyone knows. I did not use the cream and it’s not obligatory to use it. We do not need the extra fat because we live in a warm climate. In the cold, winter climates the cream would help increase your body temperature. I was interested to see on Instagram that you can actually now get Tartiflette pizzas . Makes sense. The ingredients would suit a pizza base.
