Un excellent mardi à tous !
Welcome to our Daily Dose of Positivity!
I've used the lockdown to catch up on a few comics series I wanted to read, while looking guiltily at my pile of unread novels... What about you? Today, let's talk about books!
- First, a beautiful French quote by 20th century writer Michel Butor:
Quand j’écris, je veux faire de la peinture et de la musique en même temps, et ça donne de la littérature.
When I write, I want to paint and make music at the same time, and that makes literature.
- Let's read about a mother asking for book recommendations for her son in this Fill-in-the-Blanks kwiz testing Le Subjonctif Présent:
- Have a look at the following French article presenting a great initiative by Radio Nova which got French rappers reading fairy tales for children during lockdown:
And as a bonus, here's a sentence from this article linked to our related French lessons:
Qui a dit que les rappeurs avaient oublié leur âme d'enfant ?
Who said that rappers had lost their inner child [lit. their child souls]?
- Questions: Qui, qui est-ce qui = Who ?
- Conjugate dire (+avoir) in Le Passé Composé (conversational past)
- Conjugate regular -er, -ir, -dre verbs (+ avoir) in Le Plus-que-parfait (pluperfect tense)
- Notre, nos, votre, vos, leur, leurs = our, your, their (possessive adjectives)
Have a bookish Tuesday!
Prenez soin de vous et à demain !
