Last Friday four of us got together for coffee and a chat at 9.30 so it was kind of a breakfast chat. I bought in some goodies and made some biscuits, but I ate most of them even though I later gave some away....oops
An enjoyable two hours, and we shall be meeting again a la Vera Lynn.
Just before the two French ladies left they spilled the beans and told me that the French lady who teaches them English (who is the same teacher who teaches us French) ran the class in a very rigid fixed way. I was surprised, since whilst our class isn't riotous it goes off at tangents, questions are asked often and we laugh a fair bit. Actually we laugh at one of the men who goes there because he is a bit of a case. No said the two French ladies we have so many minutes reading, dictation, and writing it is always the same.
I wonder if it is a cultural thing or are they more serious and grown up than we are?
So talking of breakfast this leads me to the picture I took last year, a lovely horse who lives up the hill outside our village.
The French word for enjoyable is agréable.
The French word for chat is bavarder.
