Géraldine – Monsieur Pas de Merde’s favorite French teacher, teaches us proper pronunciation for the Christmas holiday
I LOVE to read. It’s a very big part of my life, and I use books to help me better understand the modern world that we live in. So far in 2020, I’ve read around 98 books (not including the stories I’ve read to my son 50+ times ;)!) I know that there are some bookworms in my community, so I thought I would share some of my favorite French books with you today. Whether you enjoy fiction or nonfiction, chick-lit or more serious subjects, I’ve got a recommendation for you! Enjoy 🙂Comme une Française
Take care and stay safe.

Love changes over the years, and nothing expresses it better than this romantic love song in French by Belgian singer Jacques Brel.
Welcome back to this special series, where I teach you how to learn French using love songs in French! Today, I have a beautiful, quite melancholic song for you to discover. Love changes. A couple is not the same after a lifetime together. Jacques Brel explains that very well when he writes the beautiful, beautiful La Chanson des Vieux Amants (= Song of the Old Lovers.) Let’s use this song to learn more about romantic French. Perhaps you can practice saying these lyrics to your significant other?
Take care and stay safe. 😘 from Grenoble, France.
