Bonjour !
Once again, this edition is packed with
historical, cultural and linguistic information! Excellent!
There is exciting news regarding our recent combined

On pages 3 and 4, we will share some information regarding 3
great events in June: the International Cuisine Soirée, the Fête de
la Musique and our very first French Film Festival, with tickets
selling fast! Incroyable!
And our 3 top tips that will guarantee you success in any

Génial!
Bonne lecture!

Bethany va (peut-être) aller à Paris… Youpie!
A jury of 8 agreed unanimously on 7 May that amateur photographer #1 had supplied
pictures that best represented sport in Australia. Bethany’s 2 photographs have now been
sent to the International Alliance Française Photo Competition Committee for her chance to
win a whole-expense paid week in Paris, the capital of love.

A big thank you to French Professional Photographer,
Alexis Leblais, for his advice during the Q&A session.
Avec l’arrivée du mois de juin, on ne peut que se
mettre à fredonner le hit des Poppys « Mais oui,
mais oui, l’école est finie! » de 1972. Cette même
année, le concours de la fameuse Eurovision de la
Chanson eut lieu à Edimbourg en Ecosse et non à
Monaco, alors que Séverine avait quand même remporté la première place avec la chanson
« Un Banc, Un Arbre, Une Rue! » A la fin de la soirée musicale, c’est le Luxemburg qui reçut le
plus grand nombre de votes avec la performance de Vicky Léandros, “Après toi ». Cette année,
Amir s’est retrouvé en 6e position avec 257 points.

#1 Find words you already know;
#2 Find cognates (same or similar in English);
#3 Look at the context (what is it about?).
Lors d’une cérémonie de remise des diplômes à l’université
Rutgers, dans le New Jersey, le président américain Barack
Obama s’est livré, dimanche 15 mai, à une critique en règle
du populisme du candidat républicain à sa succession, Donald
Trump, toutefois sans le nommer.
http://www.lemonde.fr/elections-americaines/
#1 words we know: New Jersey, Barack Obama, 15, Donald Trump
#2 cognates : cérémonie (ceremony), diplômes (diploma) université (university), mai (may)…
#3 Now look at the context to find out the meaning of the other words
« La remise des diplômes à l’université Rutgers dans le New Jersey… »
Could remise mean remitted, as in given or sent? The diplomas were given, as in presented. Oui!
So here the giving refers to the presentation of diplomas at Rutgers University…
«…Barack Obama s’est livré, dimanche 15 mai, à une critique. »
A close verb in English is delivered. Here it fits perfectly ! Barack Obama delivered a critique…
Now try the Eurovision text on page 2. Bonne chance!
