Club de Lecture Mois de juin, date à décider
BEL AMI - Guy de Maupassant
Le livre qu'on lira pour le mois de juin sera Bel Ami de Guy de Maupassant. Il est disponible en anglais et en français sur Amazon et Kindle.
For our intermediate and French students, this is an excellent opportunity to practice your French reading and speaking skills: there is a dual language book French-English available on Amazon. It allows you to read the easier parts in French and revert to the English translation where it gets a bit tricky. We hope to engage everyone to express their opinion about the book in French in a friendly and encouraging discussion.
