Is it Your Dream to be FLUENT in French?
Perfect or maintain your fluency in French with Champs-Elysées monthly audio magazine, packed with interesting news and features on French life and culture. If you’re looking for rapid improvement, try the new audio study package, Champs-Elysées Plus, containing a range of listening and written exercises to help you with comprehension, vocabulary building, and improving your accent.
Dear Parler Paris Reader,
We had been personally invited by William Vonthron, whose shop on rue de Verneuil (number 40) displays a magnificent array of fine antiques and “objets d’art. Eric Allart on rue de Beaune (number 8) is “currently exhibiting Willy Rizzo’s fabulous fashion photos and Estelle Bitton, a third generation expert in kilims at “Monseigneur l’Ancien” (number 24) has a workshop filled with every color thread imaginable to repair the finest of carpets.
The shops, glowing from within, lighting their precious wares with esthetic care, as only the French know so well to do, pouring bubbly, dressed in their finest furs over fishnet stockings and high-heeled boots…the rich and the pretending-to-be-rich were there to show their support and culturally high class. It was absolute eye candy.
All of Paris glows throughout the month of December, from within the beautiful Christmas “vitrines” (windows) to the outside illuminated streets. It’s a magical time of year, when one can bask in the warm glow of the colored lights and jovial atmosphere. The City’s second edition of “Paris Illumine Paris 2005″ kicked off December 2nd, in collaboration with the merchant associations to call upon the most talented and renowned lighting designers to festively illuminate the streets and neighborhoods.
Take the guided tour in a dozen different “quartiers” between now and the beginning of January to truly experience the City of Light:
While you’re gazing at the bright lights, don’t get too blinded to stop and vote! In an amazing initiative by the City Hall to allow the 14% foreign inhbitants in the city to express themselves and their opinions, we Paris residents, regardless of what passports we hold, may have the right to vote and now’s the opportunity to vote on that! A call from the city to all its citizens (over the age of 18) provides till the 11th of December in 124 different spots to vote on this initiative.
For a complete list of voting polls, visit: http://www.paris.fr/
Bring your passport or other ID and put your positive stamp on this bold welcoming of immigrants.
A la prochaine…<
