As a millenial, I grew up with Youtube during my teenage years and still watch it to do this day. While my tastes have varied as I aged, I discovered early on that watching Youtubers who talk in French can be really beneficial for practicing my listening skills.

#ThatTranslatorCanCook Week Seventeen: Tarte Tatin
This week, I decided to give myself a bit of a challenge and make the French classic: Tarte Tatin! I have to admit, although the recipe claimed to be ‘quick and easy’, I struggled to make the caramel! Other than that, the translation process and overall cooking was fairly straightforward.
#ThatTranslatorCanCook Week Eleven: Stoemp
Did you guess from my post last week what I chose for this week? Well…I chose stoemp! Wikipedia defines this is as ‘the richer Brussels variant of the stamppot dish in the cuisine of Belgium and the Netherlands’. Let’s dive into the translation!

I’ve done a few translation jobs recently relating to finance and once again, I thought I would share the fruits of my research with you all! So here is a collection of French financial terms!

Vocab Vendredi: Music
Bonjour tout le monde! I am very sorry for the lack of blog posts recently – if you follow me on instagram, then you’ll know that I have been on a cruise to Canada for the last two weeks. Nonetheless, in between visiting exciting cities and teaching French to the passengers, I have been keepingContinue reading “Vocab Vendredi: Music”
