If you have forgotten most of your high school French, here is a vocabulary drill. Living in Canada, an officially biligual country, I still have to go out of my way to speak or read French, although all official documents and packaging labels must include both languages.
At the moment I am reading a Kathy Reichs novel Meurtres a la Carte! Although set in Montreal, it is hardly the kind of francophone literature and culture I worked so hard on at university! French-language television is marginally better than the English broadcasts… probably because we don’t see the worst here in southern Ontario… but I really couldn’t get my head around Downton Abbey when it was rebroadcast en francais. Trop bizarre!
