le Bulletin archives

If you’ve just joined our MyFrenchLife community or if you’ve missed recent le Bulletin newsletters here they are, ready for your deep dive…

le Bulletin is our weekly newsletter which provides your weekend French immersion with our most recent magazine articles to help you become a more savvy Francophile with a deeper understanding of France.

In addition to the recently published articles, each le Bulletin includes a ‘Missive‘, a conversation of sorts, between our Founder and editor-in-chief, Judy MacMahon & you. The topics of the ‘Missive’ are wide-ranging and sometimes surprising, they are impossible to categorise, other than to say that they are in some way relevant to all Francophiles…

As a subscribed member of MyFrenchLife, your ‘le Bulletin’ arrives in your email inbox each and every Saturday – enjoy!

PPS: le Bulletin CONVERSATION Catch-up

If you missed any Previous editions of Le Bulletin
‘CONVERSATION’ articles – you can play catch up here and now.

What is la ‘ Conversation’? 

  • la Conversation is an occasional essay; a conversation
    of sorts, between our Founder and editor-in-chief,
    Judy MacMahon & you, our reader/members and is
    occasionally delivered to you within ‘le Bulletin‘.
  • le Bulletin is our weekly newsletter which provides
    your weekend French immersion with our most recent
    magazine articles to help you
  • ‘Frenchify’ your life!

So, what is la Conversation all about?

As a community comprising many curious Francophiles,
myself included, there is no limit to the themes we cover in
la ‘Conversation’!

Each ‘Conversation contains at least one theme which can
range from the meaning of life to French fashion to travel and
experiences in and/or from France.

It is intended to be thought-provoking and often takes 
a philosophical approach to the challenges of life in France
and elsewhere: relationships, careers, self-awareness, and
self-improvement.

We’re open to theme and topic suggestions and we dare
you to disagree!
