A reader from France, Lisa Vanden Bos, recently sent me a copy of small, illustrated book (and by small, I mean 3 inches square) titled 90+ Ways to Know You're Becoming French. A couple of my favorites:
- Start a series by counting with your thumb (as opposed to your index figure)
- Find nothing wrong with saying in English, "I am here since three years."
- Know where the "first floor" really is
Fun stuff. You can learn more about the book here . The authors operate a website that serves the expat community in France,www.fusac.fr. You know how I know that they're becoming French? The website ends in ".fr".
