«Fromage comme ça pour dix personnes, s.v.p.»
«Je voudrais quatre baguettes, trois religieuses, trois éclairs et quatre tartes aux fraises, s.v.p.»
«Une glace, s.v.p. – trois boules – pistache, chocolat, menthe.»
Just a little of the shopping language used by Form Five on their day trip to Boulogne. They put their French into practice confidently on the market and in the tabac, boulangerie-pâtisserie, fromagerie and café. They also visited the fish market, cathedral and old town ramparts, and enjoyed being out on deck in lovely weather on the ferry.
