One program of interest may be “Do you speak English?”. It is aimed at the francophones to highlight the “faux-amis” or “fake friends” that exist between the languages.
This term refers to those words that sound pretty much the same in French and English, so we think we know what it means. But it actually refers to something totally different! It can also be used in reverse to know which words sound similar in French but are not at all the same. For example, “photographe” and “photograph” the French refers to the person whereas the English refers to the image.
Avoid a big “faux-pas” by knowing your “faux-amis”. Check out episodes of this fun show here.
The NRTV team also do brilliant coverage of the Paléo Festival on their site and Instagram account. If you can’t make it to the festival, you can be sure to catch up on all the latest news and not miss a thing!
