French Fridays, language learning for empathy, and Alexandre Dumas, père

Since I’m scheduling all of my posts ahead of time through the end of November, my language learning posts will not be in the real-time I’d been trying to post in (summarizing, each week, my intended daily work on each language).  I don’t know why I find myself surprised at his use of slavery in the novel in such a callous way (who will tell them that they are legally free?) in the novel, given Dumas’ own racial background, but then perhaps he was trying to point out the injustice of the situation?

My notes for French this week will be looking for a show for next year to watch in French, and finishing up my listening to Le Comte de Monte-Cristo (The Count of Monte Cristo) by Alexandre Dumas (Sr.):

October 17, 2020 –19.0% “Une morte évité au dernier moment !
A death avoided at the last minute!”
 
October 18, 2020 –20.0%“Guillotiner des prisonniers, c’était la fête ?”
 
October 19, 2020 –29.0% “Another secret identity of a man saving the life of the son of the woman he loves who married his enemy…”

 

I must admit that I find it annoying when LivreVox changes readers, as it is jarring, and I also had a hard time adjusting to the Quebecois readers, as I listened to all of the 1001 Nights by a reader from continental France, which is the pattern I am used to.  More on my continuing striving with French next week, friends:

Action Items in support of literacy and hope that you can take right now:

1.) Search for two different resources to translate the word “Hope” into French.

2.) Share them with us in the comments, here, please.

3.) Share your thoughts on how you like each of the resources you found,  perhaps as an update on your GoodReads reading,

4.) Write a blog post or tweet that uses a French word, tells a good story, and makes a difference. I’m working on that through my historical fantasy #WiP, #WhoByFireIWill. Once published, donate one or more copies to your local public library, as I intend to do.

Dear Readers, any additional ideas toward learning, especially multiple #LanguageLearning as part of on-going education and empathy-building, to #EndPoverty, #EndHomelessness,  #EndMoneyBail & achieve freedom for All HumanKind?

Turkish Tuesdays becomes a tribute to the #GU272 (314 slaves sold south…)

One Jesuit did try to help

–I still maintain that this is One possible use of genealogy for in-kind Reparations: restorative justice.

(and so did the students at GU, when they voted to raise their own fees to pay for an endowment to allow descendants of the Enslaved Persons sold off by G’town University to attend GU for free…)

Here is what I said about the GU272 earlier:

FYI for anyone possibly descended from slaves sold by Georgetown University, if this is true: check your genealogy and apply for that (alleged) scholarship!! Details: https://www.wikitree.com/…/are-any-descendants-slaves-sold-… Please see the full article here: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/restorative-justice-based-genealogy-creative-ways-help- back on 13 Feb. 12017 HE

So, it turns out that students at Georgetown U. voted to pay 27 dollars /semester more, to create a fund to allow descendants of those sold down to LA full scholarships. The University board so far has not seen things in the same way.  More on this if you want to know (please let me know in the comments) and more on my continuing striving with the history of those who “stayed behind” in MD, rather than being sold south by G’town college, as I incorporate this history into my WiP, next time, friends:
