Personal Notes

The French Language is Calling. Really?

This is a poster that you will find on the walls of many métro stations across Paris as a reminder to aspiring young French authors to be sure that they are called to that career path. It then advises such persons to log onto letudiant.fr for help. (As an aside, letudiant.fr is a great place to start when planning to study in France)

The advert translates roughly into ‘I wanna b an autha (author) bcz (because) I LOVE writing, itz a rl (real) pasion”

Haha! Good advice for all of us to be honest with ourselves especially when it comes to how good our French is – it is good inspiration for some of us to keep working on the language!
