It’s St. Valentine’s Day. What better time to learn French, the language of love?
In French class today at IS Aix-en-Provence we dove into a treasure chest of words and phrases the French use to express their feelings of love.
Would your heart go pitter-patter if your loved one called you “ma Puce” (my Flea)?
If someone said “avoir un cœur d’artichaut*” is it a compliment?
(*fall in love easily)
I was surprised to be told that perfume tops the gift list for Saint Valentine’s Day in France, not a heart-shaped box of chocolates. Flowers are always good. Lingerie is even better –in red, of course.
Restaurants and cafes are packed for the occasion. Boulangeries are stacked with heart-shaped, chocolate-filled, cream-puffed, decadent delicacies of every description.
“Croyez-vous au coup de foudre?” Do you believe in love at first sight?
