With Michael, we organised the meeting near Stockmann, in a small Café, very comfortable. The theme of my French lecture today is the shopping and the future tense.
I decided to teach more about the French news to Michael. I found an article about the Swedish brand H&M and its expansion in France. At the beginning of November, H&M opened a new shop, the biggest in France, in Paris, in Saint Germain des Prés. This article was a good thing, because it happens in the street where I live in France. This article about French mode and the designer used by H&M was very interesting.
This theme is interesting because it permits to Michael also to have the vocabulary for clothes and to know how ask information in a shop with the different department. We did a simulation game. He had to find a gift for his best friend, he was the customer and I was the seller. He asked me a lot of information about what he wanted exactly. I think this kind of exercise is a good thing because it permits him to be like the real situation.
Moreover, we discussed about two videos which I wanted to show him. It was about the famous big shop in Paris, Galeries Lafayette, and its famous tree, parade and windows for Christmas. Michael was very chocked, because it is a very beautiful moment in Paris. It is with designers, singers, actors. The shop is wonderful. It is a typical big event in Paris, each year it is a new parade with new ideas and a new tree.

I like having discussion in French with Michael, I think it is the best thing for him to improve his French skills. I know French is a difficult language, that is why I am very proud of him. He makes real efforts to participate and to learn more and more.
One more time, we enjoyed together this moment. We are very happy together because the course Each One Teach One permits us to realise this kind of meeting in same time we learn a lot of thing. The next meeting is tomorrow and the theme is “the school”, it is the before last theme.
Moreover, for the last meeting, we decided to do a feedback together. This meeting will be in English, to change. We want together to know, what we think about theses thirteen meetings, what we learnt, what we appreciated or not etc. So we have three meetings left (tomorrow, Saturday and Sunday).
