FOR some time now I have been keen to offer an advertising service that allows business owners the chance to promote their products to readers of This French Life, which is simple, transparent and not too expensive.
So as you will see in the right hand column there is now the option to create your own text adverts featuring a short headline and paragraph describing your product or service, which appears on more than 3,000 pages across the whole site.
THE number of people unemployed in France rose by 41,300 in August compared to the previous month, the largest increase in the figures since 1993.

Economy Minister Christine Lagarde held an emergency meeting with the main job agency, ANPE, but with little financial muscle to promote job creation the government has few options available.
IT'S not often you see Bonfire Night celebrated in France, but that's what the village of Le Boulvé, in the Lot, will be doing on November 7.
Le Grand Feu de Guy Fawkes has been organised by the newly-formed local association, Le Boulvé International, where a bonfire, traditional foods (pumpkin soup, jacket potatoes and parkin) and fireworks will be the highlights of the evening.
The evening’s entertainment starts at 7.30pm and will be held in the car park near the centre of Le Boulve – between Caumon Grillage and the Mairie, where there is also a shelter should there be any rain.

TODAY marks the European Day of Languages, which features a programme of events backed by the Council of Europe to promote linguistic diversity and learning.
And it would appear the Council has got its work cut out in the UK as a recent survey found that half of adults had forgotten the languages they'd learnt at school.
For some time now the number of pupils in UK schools learning French has been on the decline, with other languages fairing little better.
The BBC website reports that the survey, undertaken on behalf of language software firm Rosetta Stone, also found that most people agreed languages were important, while 69 per cent said they were jealous of people who were able to speak another language fluently.
