Ahh! éa fait longtemps, trop longs! Excusez-moi tout le monde! J'étais très occupée avec mon emploi, mes devoirs, les vacances etc. J'ai eu aussi une grande problème avec mon 'account' ici, car j'ai oublié mon mot de passe (oui, je sais, quelle idiote!) et le nouveau mot de passe que j'ai demandée n'étais marchee pas au début. Heureusement, je pense qu'il marche bien maintenant
Donc, je suis revenue à jamais
I hope you had a great Christmas and New Year, Amandine! Did you eat a 'Galette des rois'?
Yes at Christmas we have christmas lights hung from one building to the next in the high street in town, which is quite pretty. But, in general, its all the wacky lights and inflatable santas that people put outside the front of their houses that makes it feel christmassy
We also have a German market, where you can get lebkuchen, wurst from Schleswig Holstein etc in the town.
In our park near the bus station we hold a 'European fair', usually it is closer to Christmas time so you can buy christmas presents, but this year it was in October/ September for some unkown reason. It only lasts for a weekend, but its great. There are stalls from France, Germany, Holland, Italy, Belgium etc, selling chocolates, sausages, le fromage, meat, olives, bread, cakes, artworks like ceramics, paintings, jewellery, handbags, pashminas, pillows/ cushion covers, throws , ice cream stalls. They are also stalls like the Fair Trade one where I bought a 'Divine' chocolate advent calender fro myself. And there are local stalls selling local produce, local home made ice cream and so on.
On Christmas Eve, in the centre of town , there is a public 'carol singing' event where the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Lord Mayor of Canterbury and the cathedral choir and Salvation Army Band all gather and the public sings with them. It gets you in a christmassy mood!
Although, this year, I was working a lot around christmas, so I didnt really feel all that christmassy, and christmas day was a bit of an anti-climax as usual. We (me, my parents and brother) opened presents, had a big christmas lunch, pulled crackers, then felt very full up and sluggish.
I hope all your exams went well!
I had my first set of A Level French exams in January - AS. They didnt go as well as I would have liked as I completely ran out of time to answer all the questions on the listening paper! So, I will definitely get a lower grade overall because of this. I am trying my best, I found I got 63% in my last piece of coursework, which is not too bad! Although, the universites have asked me to get a B in French A Level, which is frankly impossible for me as I have only been studying it a year and 5 months from scratch and I work a lot in the week, so I am hoping when it comes to results day, the universities will accept me with lower grades
Btw, thanks to everyone for their French help
Its very much appreciated
Oh, I have had many accounts on TSR, most of which I have forgotten the password for, so now I just look at posts
I like the foreign language threads best
Alors, I wish you a great semester et Bonne Chance!
