Le rugby encore et toujours le rugby!!

An ex-student of Alliance Française de Bristol who used to take French tuition a few years ago is a very keen rugby supporter. He goes to nearly all the 6 nations games ( le tournoi des six nations) and loves going to Paris to Le Parc des Princes. He had an unfortunate experience last March! Not only did England lose but he had some trouble at the stadium: read about it in the comments!

Look out for our intensive courses starting soon, for more info:

French Easter: did you know?

Good Friday ( le vendredi saint) is not a bank holiday in France. On Easter Sunday ( le dimanche de Pâques) Easter eggs ( les œufs de Pâques) get dropped in the gardens or on balconies by the bells ( les cloches) on their way to Rome where they will ring for the Easter mass! No Easter bunny!
After the Easter weekend children  go back to school. They will be on holiday for les vacances de printemps from next week onwards.
