Learning in Québec
- Sylvia Ann Manning
- I'm someone who began learning French when I was 53. I took a BA in French at 60 but wasn't happy with my level of comprehension (though I read very well). So, having really become comfortable with Spanish only by living on the Mexican border, I'm spending more time in Québec and near the border of Quebec, in Vermont, to see if I can do that here with French. I want to encourage others to do the same.

La Rivière St. Charles
J'ai decouvert le pont à travers la riviére St. Charles qui porte la circulation sur la rue Marie-de-l'incarnation, la parque le long de la rivière aux les rives, et cet arte! C'est quelque chose nouveau pour moi! Mon amie Monique veut qu'anglais a un mot pour fleuve et un mot pour rivière, mais je ne crois pas qu'il y a. In English we just say river, don't we? A fleuve goes to the sea; a rivière does not. The St. Lawrence is un fleuve.
