I am from a french background. My grandparents moved here when my dad was little. They speak with these luscious french accents, rolling their ‘r’ and sounding romantic, even when telling me off!
My sister, my cousins, my aunts and uncles speak french. They converse with our overseas cousins with ease and I am struck dumb, impressed with the accents and punishing myself for not paying attention when my Grandma tried to teach me when I was a child.
When we found out that Poss’ school was a french language school, it was just another reason to send her there. And she loves it, picking the language up quickly and confidently. After two years of french lessons, she counts to 20 without thinking, sings french christmas carols and tells me jokes in a dodgy french accent.
So when I was approached to review some of the french language books from Glottogon, we jumped at the chance.
We received a parcel with a fabulous DVD (which Poss has actually taken into school to proudly show her french teacher – hence no picture!) and some great books about french speaking characters in different countries. While I can’t read them, she is certainly loving them, picking out the words she knows and I know she is just waiting for Aunty Claire to come back home again to read them with her!
Along with the fabulous language books, Glottogon have a wonderful range of early language books and resources for those just learning to read, as well as those who are developing their second language skills.
And just because they are really nice people, they have given me a $50 voucher to giveaway so that you can try their books for yourself!
Drop by their store (here) and check it out, then come back and tell me what you would spend your $50 voucher on.
My sister, Claire will pick the answer that appeals best to her (just because she speaks THREE languages fluently, so I figure she knows about these things!).
You have until Monday 14th at 9pm to enter and she will pick it overnight on the Monday (because she is in Denmark, time differences and all) and I will announce on Tuesday 15th May. Judges decision (Claire) will be final and no debate will be entered into (or whatever that disclaimer should say) and it is open to Australian residents only.
