Dear passionate learner of French,
A while ago, I posted a video taking with me learners of French like you to discover Eleonor of Aquitaine’s life at Fontevraud Abbey to We walked into the abbey where to dear friends Florence Font who is actually a guide at the abbey embodied Aliénor d’Aquitaine the iconic medieval queen. I wanted to share it with you again because this video is emblematic of my teaching approach which is in a nutshell :
“In order for you to learn French and make progress in French, you absolutely need to dive into its civilisation and culture.
So we went with a small group of my students, actually I took 2 groups there! to visit the abbey and the history of the place including Aliénor d’Aquitaine’s life
So bear with us for this fantastic tour of the abbey, this time I did not zoom in on grammar, vocabulary and expressions however I have designed this video for you with a pre-intermediate intermediate or advanced level. Do enjoy this interlude in Fontevraud l’Abbaye right inside the abbey, with a friendly bunch of people, fabulous guides and loads of interesting things to learn about French culture and history.
