Retour difficile à NY...

Pour des raison familiales très tristes et douloureuses, j'ai du retourner en France à la veille des fêtes de Noël...(vol aller le 22 décembre et vol retour prévu le 25).

Le 25, me voici donc dans l'aéroport de Barcelone, assez vide en cette journée de Noël. Peu importe pour moi, l'important est de regagner NY, ma famille et la chaleur de mon foyer.…

How to sell jewelry in NYC without the ripoff: the CIRCA model

The business of selling personal jewelry has always been mysterious and fraught with suspicion, in my mind. So even though ethnic and costume jewelry is more my cup of tea since many years, I was loathe to take the risk of being hoodwinked. After reading this … Continue

French Mondays: French language classes for theatre lovers

Our French language classes draw on a combination of grammar, theater exercises and work on contemporary Francophone scenes to help students learn to speak French with fluency & confidence. They are a prerequisite to our pure "acting in French" class for students who are French or already have a strong French foundation. Wine tasting with every class.

Adresses pour ceux qui aiment cuisiner...

Tout a commencé par un "ras le bol" du supermarché de quartier. Aliments sans saveur, fruits et légumes fades, peu de choix et donc, une routine qui s'installe et qui ne me convient pas.

Ce WE a donc été une "chasse aux saveurs". Et comme ici, tout est démesuré, il nous a bien fallu un WE entier pour parcourir Manhattan et ses épiceries.

Voici quelques épiceries qui m'ont paru très intéressantes, au niveau qualité-prix :

- Trader's…

Simple Histoire d'Amour by Allegra

Simple Histoire d'Amour

by Allegra (7th Grade student)

Finalist in the Concours 2010

 

C’était un beau matin de printemps,

M. Egalité se baladait dans le parc

On voyait les autonomes petits enfants

Mais sur le lac, pas d’amoureux sur les barques.

M. Egalité s’assit sur un banc

Et contempla les roses, les hibiscus et les pissenlits.

Il était tout seul et n’était pas très…
