    Request for Advice on 11+ Tuition

    I work as a tutor at GCSE and A-level, in maths and the sciences. The problem is what to do to pay the bills in the summer holidays.

    I have thought about tutoring the ‘Kent Test’ (which is the 11+ here) through the summer. I have been given differing opinions on this: some say it is easy and I should go for it, others say that it is so unlike tutoring the 15-18 age group that a very different style is needed and parent’s expectations are much higher of the tutor relative to the student given the latter are only 10 years old.

    Friend or more than friends?

    I just got back from visiting some friends in Lyon and I asked them to explain how to talk about friends versus boyfriends/girlfriends in French; something I've never been sure about.

    In school I was taught that:

    un ami - a male friend
    une amie - a female friend
    un petit ami - a boyfriend
    une petite amie - a girlfriend

    then there is the more casual vocabulary:

    un copain - a male friend
    une copine - a female friend

    Some great French films

    I bought a few French films on DVD the other day, all from the fifties and sixties and all superb. I'd recommend them all:

    Le Trou - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0054407/

    A prison break set in La Santé prison in Paris, most of the actors were not professionals.

    Bob le Flambeur - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0047892/

    A casino heist. The main character Bob is a very suave, aging gambler.

    Du rififi chez les hommes - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0048021/
    (also called just 'rififi')

    A gangster film and another heist movie.

    There is some great slang in these films too:

    Language show in London

    If anyone is interested, there is a language show on at Olympia in London today, tomorrow and Sunday, called the "language show" (logically enough).

    It's free if you register in advance, else I think you can pay on the door on the day. I'm going to go and check it out.

    French meetup last night

    Last night I went along to a French meetup event near Charing Cross and it was great.
    There were at least 50 people there and a good mix of nationalities.
    Everyone was very friendly and after a few hours of speaking moderately badly in French, I was worn out(!)

    Definitely recommend this group if you want to practice your French over a glass of wine or two.

    Watching French news online

    There are various sites that allow you to watch the news in French online and I try and watch a bit whenever I can. If you are trying to learn a language, you definitely want to get as much exposure to it as possible and I think the news is a great way of doing that, even if you don't understand everything.
