La France

Je pense, donc je suis

Géraldine Lepère, Dec 11

French people just love to debate. Sometimes it looks scary, friends turn on each other, loudly disagree, insults are thrown…but actually, it’s a sport. It’s discussion not dispute. It’s good fun, and when it’s over, the conversation will go back to wine, food and love.

Debate is a part of the French way of life. One might say they are better at arguing positions than actually acting upon them, but that’s… up to debate.

Even if your French isn’t perfect, Géraldine's latest episode will teach you everything to be the next Simone de Beauvoir of your dinner table !
