2. We did some gargling and kkkkkkkk-ing to work on our French “Rs”. This sound feels unnatural for us to make, but the more effort you put into practicing it, the better it will sound. This is one of the top two sounds to master as an English speaker to sound more “French”. (The other is the French “u”.) Répétez! Répétez! Répétez! http://french.about.com/cs/pronunciation/a/mistakes.htm and a humorous but helpful http://www.wikihow.com/Fake-a-Convincing-French-Accent-- note the “ummm” info: It’s TRUE!
3. Madame’s PowerPoint tried again NOT to appear, but thankfully her daughter was home and resent it. I presented the major ways that Impressionist art differs from that which preceded it. You should have taken notes supplementing those you already took from the article. I will post this PowerPoint once my presentation is complete.
Start thinking about which artist you would like to “be”. Degas and Berthe Morisot have been “dibbed”. LUNDI: Guest speaker: Madame Ennis. Come prepared to be attentive, take notes and ask questions!!!
NOTE: I forgot to RE-collect your answers to the Impressionist reading. HAND THEM BACK INTO ME ON MONDAY!
