Bon jour mon amies!
That is what three years of French taught me along with some other very useful sentences like quelle heure est-il? and il est du soleil, which I Google translated to mean it is the sun but I thought meant it is sunny. So I think I could actually be more dangerous in France than not knowing any French at all! But luckily I have a Canadian friend, Valerie who is fluent in both French and English and volunteered to translate two of my stories. So now, for the very first time, the french speaking world can enjoy Doodles and Jots too!
For a sneak peek watch this video on Facebook and don’t forget to like Doodles and Jots!
Included in this printable book are How’d I End up with a Zoo and How’d I End up with a Greenhouse. Two stories about brothers who had very unconventional ways of making household repairs. For a board book print the following PDF: Bilingual Zoo Book Printable on card stock double sided, follow instruction from this post on how to make a saddle stitch binding without a special stapler, fold, and trim. For a non board book, print page one of the PDF in card stock then pages 3-18 on copy paper.
Language was never my strong suit. I had all I could handle with English! That said, I know there are many benefits to being able to learn and speak a second language not the least of which is travel! If you learn French here are some of the places in the world you will be able to communicate: France of course, parts of Canada, Africa, Belgium, Luxembourg, Monaco, Switerland, and Haiti. Not bad right? It is definitely something I now, looking back, wish I had stuck with (along with the piano).
Do you speak a second language or wish you did? Please share!
