FROM legal eagles fighting over cartoons, to the pros and cons of learning French, there are some interesting articles out on the web.
Colin Randall takes a look at the court case brought against satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, which has subsequently been dropped, after it published cartoons depicting the prophet Mohammed.
And whilst Colin outlines his own thoughts and ideas, the comments section on the piece has turned into a real slanging match and you’d do well to keep track of the thread.
Much is made in the comments that some Brits head to France and enjoy the life there, but give little in return, often hiding behind their lack of language skills.
Something that Arnold on his Foreign Perspectives website brings up when he asks if it is possible to live in France without speaking a word of French.
He believes that in some of the areas that appeal to Brits, such as the Dordogne and Brittany, there is a good chance you could survive, but elsewhere it would be difficult.
I am sure many would agree that you could be living anywhere if you spend all day in your English-language ghetto, yet you would be missing out on a myriad of experiences – but then again maybe that’s more a question of mentality than one of conjugation.
And talking of getting out and exploring things, Anne of the blueVicar site takes her keen eye and writing skills to the doctor’s surgery, whilst Sarah, of the St Bloggie de Riviere site, has been busying building a new online home for an association promoting the arts.
