THIS (AND MORE!) IS NOW AVAILABLE ON YOUR BLACKBOARD! Please get in touch at if you have any trouble accessing it.

Monday 7th and Tuesday 8th October

Here is the answer to how to say "binge" in French! (from Word Reference which is great because it puts words in context); I have heard and like the latter one best!

Les jours de pluie, j'aime regarder des films à l'excès.
Les jours de pluie, j'aime enchaîner les films.
Les jours de pluie, je me fais un marathon de films.

I was also asked what "informative" was in French: it is "instructif"!

About collectives for animals: we just don't have many at all! Click here for the most I could find!

Finally 2 sites that were recommended for you to listen to French radio: news in slow French and radio garden.

Merci et à bientôt!


PLEASE NOTE: to those of you who asked me to be moved up or down a level and who mentioned not having access to Blackboard... I passed the information on to the UWLP secretary (Michelle, on the top level of the Old Library Building) on Tuesday evening, so if you have not heard anything from her please chase up (I advise you go to the office to ask) as I am afraid there is nothing else I can personally do. Bonne chance!
