Summer Reads Summary (en français, svp!) Posted by on May 27, 2010

C’est l’été, et les vacances sont enfin arrivées (It’s the Summer, and the holidays have finally arrived.) Quel bonheur ! Je remercie aussi Jennie de ses nombreux compliments (I thank her for her many compliments), et je souhaite lui dire ceci: J’aime sincèrement beaucoup tes contributions, elles sont variées (they are varied), très souvent amusantes (very often amusing), et particuliérement informatives…

Carrie Bradshaw à Paris Posted by on May 27, 2010

D’abord, je pense que je suis aussi fan d’Hichem que vous!  I think I’m as much a fan of Hichem as you are! “Thé à la menthe”  is one of my favorite chansons (songs), et j’adore Vincent Cassel. Sa femme n’est pas mal non plus (his wife isn’t bad either)—vous connaissez Monica Bellucci ? Motivée par…

We keep you au courant of tous les événements majeurs qui se passent sur la scène française (all major events that happen on the French scene.) Alors, que s’est-il récemment passé?

“Avez-vous déjà vu…?” (“Have you already seen…?”) Posted by on May 21, 2010

Today, we have a special DMCV (which stands for “Dieux Merci C’est Vendredi”, if you still don’t know it yet), and I wonder if you have already seen it? “Avez vous déjà vu … Cendrillon qui prend l’avion?“ I mean: Avez-vous déjà vu… “Avez-vous déjà vu“? (Have you already seen… “Have you already seen”?) Hold on a second. Did I…

How to Make French Crepes Posted by on May 21, 2010

Ce soir, j’ai fait des crêpes! (Tonight, I made crêpes !) C’était délicieux. J’aimerais vous donnez une recette (I’d like to give you a recipe) but it’s not the precise measurements that matter.  L’esprit de crêpe (that is a made-up expression) is more important than the crepes themselves! (There’s still a recipe here, quand même.)…

French Slang Expressions with the Letter C Posted by on May 20, 2010

We pick up our alphabet of French slang with the letter C! * * * C comme… (C, as in…) * Charier: Charier quelqu’un means to tease or to make fun of someone. Example: “Tu me charies, chérie?” (Are you kidding me, Darling?”) Obviously, “chérie” and “charies” here are phonetically closer in French than English.) * Chaud: Literally…
