Welcome to your gateway to French events!
Unfortunately, Wal and I were forced to stay home, confined because of Covid, but I heard that not only was the dinner at Tidal successful, but it was absolutely delicious... I would be delighted to hear about your comments. You will find a copy of the Alliance Française de la Cote de Saphir’s pamphlet over the page and attached to your email, prepared by our talented librarian, Carole, which I highly recommend you to share with friends and possible members.
The French Language and Francophonie Week, which this year took place from 18 to 26 March, is a rendezvous for word lovers. The theme of this year’s edition was "Dis-moi dix mots à tous les temps" (Tell me ten words in all tenses) and invited us to reflect on our perception of and relationship with time, in particular by playing with the French words that express it, including : lambiner (dawdle), dare-dare (double quick) and "déjà-vu", which is widely used in Australia. From this idea and with the arrival of Easter, I am offering you two word compositions based on the unavoidable, for our greatest pleasure, chocolate eggs, and wish you an eggcellent family, friendly, génér’oeuf and délici’oeuf (*) Easter weekend, as well as very pleasant reading and hope to see you all on Tuesday 18 April for our first movie night of the year, “Les Deux Alfred”, a light-hearted human comedy about a virtual world that will never replace real encounters ...
With all my friendship,
(*) génér’oeuf for généreux (generous) and délici’oeuf for délicieux (delicious)
