ENG-FRA -- a bilingual discussion list

ENG-FRA Info Page

In our Class One some of you expressed a desire to use the Internet to COMMUNICATE with real English speakers... university students and otherwise. (And in a more serious venue then simply a chat room...)
:-)

ENG-FRA is a bilingual mailing list...(part of the eTandem network)...and its goal is to provide a platform for native speakers of both language to discuss the two languages , English and French, and anything that concerns the cultures and people that speak them.

Since I'm one of the coordinators of the forum I follow all the messages and recently the French members have been very quiet and the English speakers have been asking for discussion and conversation...

subjects offered for discussion recently include literature... (books critical of the US and Canada), the Muslim veil question in France, and "where are all the French participants"? :-)


here are two recent postings:

Pourtant tout le monde est la :)


Il nous faut avoir des sujets très séduisants pour nous inciter de se discuter. Je pense que, en part, le silence tient aux brouhahas existant aujourd'hui entre la France et les Etats-Unis concernant la Guerre en Irak, la politique de George Bush, etc. Aussi, les vacances de Noël doit y avoir pour quelque chose. J'ai l'impression que les français vont à la plage ou d'ailleurs où il n'y a pas de connection sur l'internet pendant leurs vacances. Donc, ils ont une bonne excuse. : - )    

Je peux tenter d'ouvrir un nouveau chemin en entamant une discussion sur la littérature. Aimez-vous la littérature québecoise? Moi je commence à lire Bonheur d'occasion de Gabriel Roy - c'est très bien.   

Côté politique, un type dans ce forum m'a conseillé de lire Le Livre Noir du Canada Anglais. Connaissez-vous ce livre? Qu'est-ce que vous en pensez?

Bonjour John,
No, le forum n'est pas mort au moins il existe encore. Je crois
que il y a beaucoup de gens en vacance à présent et il n'y a pas de
dialogue depuis longtemps!

Est-ce qu'il y a quelque chose à discuter?

Toutes les corrections de mon français sont bienvenue!
A+

Ken

Comment allez-vous? Il est sympatique entendre les choses interessant sur le forum, comme les sujets des livres et politiques. Je pense ce n'est pas seulement les Etats Unis qui n'as pas une histoire parfait. Mais avec tout les problemes les monde premier a eu, nous devons apprendre de les faux pas et ne ses cacher pas. Dieu benent Canada, la terre d'espace profundie. Je voudrait l'aller. Gens me disent qu' il est tres, tres beau et symaptique. Il est bon avoir le forum actif encours et entend de tous de vous. Je irai au France quelqueheure en juin ou julliet. Laissez-moi si vous voudriez une amie de stylo.
Qu'est-ce que je doit voir? J'espoie que tout le monde avoir une bon-temps ser les fetes de fin de l'annee.

How are you? It is nice to have interesting things to talk about on the forum, like books and politics. I think it is not only the U.S. that doesn't have a perfect history. But with all the problems that the first world has had, we must learn from the mistakes and not hide them. God bless Canada, the land of deep and plentiful space. I would like to go there. People tell me that it is very beatiful and friendly. It is good to have the forum active again and to hear from all of you. I will go to France sometime in june or july. Let me know if you would like a pen-pal. What should I see when I am there. I hope that everybody has fun this holiday. Seasons Greetings, Molly
