Youpi ! C'est le weekend !
Welcome to our Daily Dose of Positivity!
Today, let's say it with flowers!
- To start with, a French expression :
- le dire avec des fleurs (to say it with flowers)
Dites-le avec des fleurs !
Say it with flowers!
- Then, let's practise our French colour agreement with this Fill-in-the-Blanks kwiz about a lovely Flower Fair :
- And finally, a heart-warming French article about a French horticulturalist [US: horticulturist] who used his unsold flowers to embellish graves.
Here is a sentence from this article linked to our related French lessons:
Des jacinthes, des jonquilles, des primevères, des fleurs qui allaient partir à la benne.
Hyacinths, daffodils, primroses, flowers that were going to go into the dumpster.
Qui = Who, which, that (relative pronouns)
J'allais + infinitive = I was going to (Le Futur Proche in the past)
À + le = au, à + les = aux, de + le = du, de + les = des (contractions of articles)
Before I sign off, I'd like to give a shout out to my sister-in-arms Shui Ng, who is writing the positive messages every day for our Spanish site. If you've ever thought of brushing off your Spanish, take a look!
Have a colourful Saturday!
Prenez soin de vous et à demain !
