Postcards from Paris Newsletter April 30, 2010


Bonjour à tous! Hello everyone! I’m sending a big welcome to all my new subscribers!

(PS – If you’d like to post a message, click the ADD A COMMENT link below. If you’d like to sign up, please fill in the little form on this page – thanks!)

I’ve been a bit tardy in getting my recent Postcards from Paris Newsletters done, and I’ve found THE SOLUTION!

From today I’m going to be creating little videos – 3-4 minutes each, which will cover a few quick topics about my website and Paris, and I do hope you enjoy them – I’m VERY excited, as this means I’ll be able to get the Newsletters out to you much faster, and hopefully a couple of times a month – woohoo!

What’s in the videos?

How do I order a coffee in Paris? Follow these tips


Now that I’ve shown you the different TYPES of coffee you can order in French, I thought I might give you some actual sentences to help you out :-)

English: French Translation:
“Good morning, I’d like a coffee with milk please.” “Bonjour, je voudrais un grand creme s’il vous plait.”
Waiter: “Anything else, madam?” “C’est tout madame?”
“Do you have any croissants?” “Vous avez des croissants?”
Waiter: “Yes we do. How many?” “Oui, bien sur. Combien?”
“Two please. How much will that be?” “Deux s’il vous plait. C’est combien?”
Waiter: “5 euros please.” “Cinq euros, s’il vous plait.”
As you leave the café, don’t forget to say … “Au revoir, Messieurs/Dames!”




To hear these phrases spoken, please watch Video #03:
