Happy Chinese New Year – In French!
“At the Alliance Française de Singapour we make learning French a way to understand people and culture.” This advertising card from 2010 celebrates the Year of the Tiger, complete with roaring in French. On perusing their site, I was disappointed to learn that I’ve just missed an exhibition of collaborative work of lecturers and students contemplating the Power of Image, and the Image of Power, entitled “The Great Lubricator“. While I don’t doubt that the Alliance’s French skills are excellent, it may be that the English translation of this particular exhibition could have been done a little differently.
Today we celebrate the Year of the Monkey. Bon Nouvel An Chinois!
