Oui, c'est jeudi !
Welcome to our Daily Dose of Positivity!
Going out to restaurants, cinemas, shops... We've all missed this, but it's going to need reinventing in our post-confinement world. So today, let's talk about going out in the past, present and future tense!
- First, let's enjoy a nice meal at the restaurant with this Bilingual reader:
- And now a fun French expression adapted to the times:
- faire du lèche-vitrine
(to go window-shopping - lit: to do window-licking)
En ce moment, je ne fais pas de lèche-vitrine, je fais du lèche-écran !
At the moment, I don't go window-shopping, I go browser-shopping!
(literally: At the moment, I don't do window-licking, I do screen-licking!)
- Finally, cinemas are going back to the future as drive-ins are being opened all around the world. Have a look at the following French article about Bordeaux's cinéma en plein air, and discover the Spanish side of this trend with my sister-in-arms Shui Ng, who is writing the positive messages every day for our Spanish site.
And as a bonus, here's a sentence from this article linked to our related French lessons:
Ce festival itinérant, qui devrait se poser ensuite à Marseille et dans les Hauts-de-France, va présenter dix films en dix jours dans la capitale girondine.
This traveling festival, which should then move to Marseille and to the Hauts-de-France region [re:northernmost region of France], is going to present ten movies in ten days in the capital of the Gironde region [i.e.Bordeaux].
Have a friendly Thursday!
Prenez soin de vous et à demain !
