📚 Books: Sale at the British Museum 🇬🇧🏛️

Last week, I received an e-mail with the following subject:

Discounted books from £2! Learn with the British Museum.

Why to buy them? Because they are so cheap and useful for teaching but, to be honest, this time I’ve just bought them as a treat to myself. My pics were:

📚 Books: Culottées 🇫🇷

Today is #InternationalWomensDay. You’ve probably seen it everywhere. GOOD!

I was just writing on this day to recommend a super lovely book (2 volumes actually)  that celebrates extraordinary women (Layers, musicians, writers, astronauts, journalist… even a volcanologist!) that although history did not grant them the tag of ‘superstar’ (to most of them) they deserve it so very much.

Fascinating lives and stories illustrated by Pénélope Bagieu (http://www.penelope-jolicoeur.com/) that deserve your time and attention (in my opinion) are included in:

Culottées (Tome 1): Des femmes qui ne font que ce qu’elles veulent AND Culottées (Tome 2): Des femmes qui ne font que ce qu’elles veulent.

On one occasion a couple of my students asked me if I could think of 10 French personalities that were not death. I was a bit shocked by the question since I was not their French teacher (they had a great teacher btw) so I asked them, what was the purpose of such question? (…and luckily I could name my 10 :P).

Then they explained to me that sometimes they felt a bit ignorant because they didn´t know much about French celebrities the way the French exchange students (that visited us) did know about British and American celebrities. So I went:
