The festive season is a time for making memories, so let's see how a French Christmas is really spent!
If you’re lucky enough to be in Paris this December, don’t we have a treat for you...
n total juxtaposition to the glamour of the season of Advent, I recently read about a rather controversial decision which would affect the capital – or a good 9.2 per cent of it this year, if the unemployment statistics are anything to go by. During my time in Paris, I remember noticing the stark and irrefutable presence of the city’s SDF (sans domicile fixe, or homeless).
For the holidays, I created a realistic dialogue to introduce you to both the French traditions and precise vocabulary used in France around Christmas and the holidays. Pay close attention to the many uses of 'on'. Enjoy, and happy holidays!
