Qui veut jouer avec nous ?

Les Français adorent les jeux de lettres et de culture générale. C'est sans doute dû à cette langue si particulière, retorse et belle à la fois. Scrabble, Boggle, acrostiches, anagrammes, charades, mots croisés, mots fléchés et autres sites sur internet font le bonheur de millions de francophones dans le monde entier.

Retrouvons nous pour jouer en français.

Pour cela, je vous propose de laisser ici un post indiquant le type de jeu auquel vous voulez jouer et vos… Continue

Amuse-Bouche No. 12: A la nage (Swimmingly) - Do you swim like a monkey wrench?

A la nage (Swimmingly)



by Julia Frey



Do you swim like a monkey wrench?



Le mois d’août ! In France it’s synonymous with holidays, for August is vacation month, and gives us words for the two pests of the season, aoûtats (chiggers) and aoûtiens (August vacationers). When it’s 36ºC (97 in the shade) on the Côte d’Azur, I avoid both plaies (literally, wounds—unbearable people or things) by heading to the neighborhood… Continue

Amuse-Bouche No. 13: La Rentrée: The Opposite of Vacation



by Julia Frey



In France, the new year begins on September 1.



September in Paris. So many parties. We go to a cocktail for Laurent’s new novel, due out for la rentrée littéraire. “What exactly,” I wonder, “is a rentrée?” (re-entry). He says you have to begin with the end. End of the holidays, that is.



A year has only nine months in France. It’s over in May,… Continue

Woodside school to host Queens' first French dual language program

Queens’ first French dual-language program is opening this fall at PS 151 in Woodside, elating the school’s principal, parents and members of the city’s Francophone community who have long wished more schools would offer classes in the language spoken by more than 300,000 families citywide, including many in Woodside and Astoria.



“I didn’t realize this, but there’s a large French population in Astoria and Queens,” said PS 151 Principal Jason Goldner. “When we had an orientation for… Continue

Amuse-Bouche No. 11: Double-Talk. What’s a foreigner to do when a French word can mean so many things?

Amuse-Bouche No. 11: Double-Talk



by Julia Frey



What’s a foreigner to do when a French word can mean so many things?



Sarah suggested lunch at L’Enfance du Lard. “C’est un resto médiocre, mais j’aime son nom” (Not a great restaurant, but I love the name). The French, ever champions of la nuance (subtlety), paradoxically love puns, particularly horrible puns for business names. L’Enfance du Lard (literally, “the childhood of bacon”) is a… Continue

On the really light side, une recette d ete " tahine Libanais"...

Je pense que cela devrait interresser une partie d entres vous.
Tahine recipe:
Mix one box of pois chiches(chick peas) with some mix or pure tahine(like a table spoon or two of tahine. It depends if its pure or not)
add 2 or 3 pieces of garlic, lemon juice and mix the whole thing in the food processor.
But dont be to close to someone else for a while...

NYC, the capital of plurality...

Kerry and I went in East Canal Street a few weeks ago.

They had a block party.They were celebrating a drink, a mix of vanilla ice cream and sparkling water.

But the most important part of our journey down to extreme China town(it took us a good 1h to find the place) was to our complete stupefaction a 200 years old magnificent Sepharadic Synagogue built at the end of the 18th century.Really Amazing.Both Chinese and Jewish community organized the block party.Inside the Synagogue the… Continue

Sarkozy, jogging in Central Park, petit malaise, big issue; et de rire la presse



C'est la crise. Certains craquent, sont invites a prendre leurs clics et leurs claques. D'autres claquent. Mais Charlie est la pour nous faire garder le sourire.



Pas ce Charlie,





Charlie Hebdo est un journal satirique, souvent au cœur des polémiques, et toujours salutaire pour la liberté d'expression et la démocratie.

How about a big social event with members actually meeting in person?A great Francophone opportunity...

Fabrice Jaumont had such a fantastic idea in creating this site.
It enhances the French culture and social contact in NY.
In fact, I was very enthusiastic joining this internet social club but now
it makes me want more.
How about we meet in person?!
May be a gathering, like a Francophone event.
It would be a great opportunity to meet a lot of different people, exchange ideas, and have a lot of fun...
Have a wonderful day....
