Vivez la Langue
Though I was studying and traveling primarily in and around Italy, I did get the opportunity to go to Paris for a week. [Sighhh] I may, or may not, have actually cried when we landed at Charles du Gall (which we eventually learned to correctly pronounce "sha-doo-gull"). I was that excited. Paris is just such a majestic and romantic city from the wide tree-lined avenues to the breathtaking architecture. And the crepe stands at every corner. It's no wonder that Paris has inspired generations of artists. As part of Education First's Live the Language Campaign, they created absolutely beautiful videos for the cities Paris, London, Barcelona, and Beijing. Each video features, what I am going to call "city-specific type" to illustrate various vocabulary words.
Vivez la Langue (Live the Language): Paris
And now I officially have the travel bug. Again.
The Daily Drop Cap "b". Brilliant.
