In less than two weeks time, on the 7 and the 8 of February, Felica has to take an exam : a mock test of the Brevet des collèges. The Brevet des collèges is like the baccalauréat but for younger students. It ends the college time. She needs to revise the lessons done from September to now. The real exam will take place in June. But no worries, if you fail at the stage, you still can access the lycée. 

With the transcript of this episode, you get photos, explanations and today a special focus on the learning vocabulary !

My name is Laetitia, I’m French, I live just outside Paris and I share with you a small slice of my daily life here in France.

Be prepared, today Cultivate Your French takes you to a journey into the past. My friend Claire is an historian. She works at the INJS, a school for deaf people. Well the first school in the word for deaf young people, created in the 17th century by l’abbé de l’Epée. Her job at the INJS school is archivist of the ancient library. Recently, one of her colleagues asked her to find the oldest book of the library. It appeared to be a book published in 1514. Claire was really curious about this book so she looked on the BNF catalogue (National Library of France)  and found a similar copy. She asked for an appointment and went to the BNF to have a look and compare the two copies, hers and the BNF one. They appeared to be the same. One detail though was different : the date of publication. The BNF copy had been published on March the 14th of 1500. This date means something. But what ? This is what you are going to discover in today’s episode.

Galette.jpg

Last week was a long week! Our girls went back to school, they had tests in many subjects as math, geography, Italian, etc. 
I went back to kung-fu class 3 times a week because there will be a competition on January the 22nd. 
When the week-end started, I had the feeling that the Christmas holidays were a long time ago. 
But, the beginning of January is the time for the galette, the most comforting moment. 

In the notes of this episode I give you the vocabulary and useful sentences to celebrate La galette des Rois in French. 👑

Bonne année à tous! Je vous souhaite une très belle et heureuse année 2022! 
I wish you to keep that sparkle of French in your life and to live nice French moments in 2022. 

On the 2nd of January, my friend Isabelle invited me to have a walk with her husband and her in Meudon. This is where we usually go with our nordic walk group. 
Thierry had the idea to walk in a part of the forest where we don’t usually go with our coach. It was a nice day. We took some nice pictures, we saw a young woman on a golden horse and we suddenly landed on a road. 

In today’s notes : special focus on indirect object pronouns.
