Queen Elizabeth II and the past tense in French

Yesterday and today … Courrier International invites us to an exciting time travel to remember Queen Elizabeth II. An opportunity to revise the use of past tenses in French.

Queen Eisabeth


Instructions: Read the text and the verbs in bold, then find our grammar sheet at the end of the article. It’s a gift, don’t forget to download it.

« Le monde au début du règne d’Élisabeth II : Staline, Edgar Faure et “Chantons sous la pluie”.

La reine Élisabeth II est morte le 8 septembre 2022. Soixante-dix ans plus tôt, en février 1952, c’est un autre monde qui a assisté (assister à ) – en noir et blanc – à son accession au trône britannique.

Le journaliste britannique Peter Oborne plonge soixante-dix ans en arrière en ouverture de son article consacré au décès de la monarque britannique publié par Middle East Eye. “Quand Élisabeth II est devenue (devenir) reine à l’âge de 25 ans le 6 février 1952, Winston Churchill était (être) Premier ministre, Staline était (être) à la tête de la Russie et Farouk était (être) roi d’Égypte. Au Royaume-Uni, il n’y avait (avoir) pas d’autoroutes et pas d’Internet, et la radio était (être) plus répandue que la télévision.”

“En 1952, la population mondiale était (être) d’environ 2,6 milliards de personnes”, contre près de 8 milliards en 2022, se souvient aussi Business Insider. Aux États-Unis, “Harry Truman était (être) président, un café coûtait (coûter) environ 30 cents, et l’espérance de vie moyenne était (être) de 71 ans pour les femmes et de 65 ans pour les hommes”, contre 82 et 78 ans aujourd’hui. En 1952, “la poliomyélite faisait (faire) des ravages aux États-Unis, avec 58 000 nouveaux cas”, et les pilules contraceptives n’étaient (être) pas autorisées, rappelle le site américain.

En France, en février 1952, l’éphémère premier gouvernement d’Edgar Faure est au pouvoir, sous la présidence de Vincent Auriol.

Dans un article paru en 2012 pour le jubilé de diamant d’Élisabeth II (soixante années de règne), c’est un voyage dans la capitale britannique telle qu’elle était (être) en 1952 que proposait CNN.

“Si vous souhaitez téléphoner, il vous faudra trouver une cabine téléphonique rouge, à condition d’être prêt à affronter les nombreux épisodes de smog qui affectent Londres à l’époque, décrit le média américain. […] En décembre 1952, 4 000 personnes sont mortes étouffées par la pollution urbaine de la capitale, et des milliers d’autres sont tombés malades.”

Sept ans seulement après la fin de la Seconde Guerre mondiale, “le rationnement de certains produits alimentaires était (être) encore en vigueur en 1952 : celui du thé a pris fin (prendre fin) en octobre et celui des bonbons et du sucre seulement en 1953, retrace aussi CNN. […] Les plus gros postes de dépense des ménages après le loyer étaient (être) les cigarettes : 6 % du budget des familles partait (partir) en volutes de fumée.”

Le “blockbuster” dans les cinémas britanniques en 1952 ? Chantons sous la pluie, avec Gene Kelly. En France, la même année, c’est Fernandel dans Le Petit Monde de don Camillo qui tient le haut de l’affiche.

“Qu’est-ce qui n’a pas changé (changer) à Londres depuis 1952 ? interroge le média américain. Les Britanniques sont toujours fous de football et de cricket, et ils vont toujours au pub. Les grands monuments de Londres comme la cathédrale Saint-Paul, la Tour de Londres et le Parlement sont encore debout. Les bus rouges à impériale et les taxis noirs sillonnent les rues, et la météo est toujours la même.”

A trip in Paris with ALIP – Louvre Museum

The Louvre Museum


The name alone makes us dream. And there are many of us who dream and visit it every year.

It must be said that there is a lot to see: more than 500,000 works of art are kept there, which is incredible for a Parisian museum.

And among these treasures, there are many masterpieces from around the world. It is a journey through the world and also through the key periods of the history of humanity.

We tell you a short history of this monument of the Parisian artistic life.

« In the Middle Ages, King Philippe Auguste, of the Capetian family, built a fortress near the Seine that would become a royal secondary residence a few centuries later, under King Charles V.
François Ier, in the 18th century, settled there permanently, with his 16 children!

The building will undergo many changes over time but Louis XIV will finally abandon it in favor of the Palace of Versailles. But the museum project was born with him.
It was at the time of the French Revolution that the first royal collections were exhibited.

The Louvre was almost destroyed by fire during the events of the Commune. But the museum was saved from the flames and continued to evolve.

In 1988, the architect Ming Pei built his glass pyramids there. In 2012, Islamic art made its debut in the museum. Today, two “Louvres” are born: in Lens in France and in Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates.»


♥ What will we see at the Louvre? ♥

Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa (1503), Veronese’s The Wedding at Cana (1562-1563), Géricault’s The Raft of the Medusa (1818-1819), Ingres’ The Great Odalisque (1814)… And let’s not forget Khorsabad’s Winged Bulls (circa 710 BC), the famous Scroll of the Sea (circa 1880 AD), and the C.), the famous Crouching Scribe (circa 2620-2500 BC), the Venus of Milo (circa 150-130 BC), the Victory of Samothrace (circa 200-185 BC)
The Venus of Milo (c. 150-130 BC), the Victory of Samothrace (c. 200-185 BC) and many others.

Have a nice trip in art and culture!

Discover the interview of Caroline, our French teacher and coach


“Hello Caroline, what French course did you teach at ALIP?

  • Hello, I just left an amazing little group of international students that I followed from November 22 to December 17, 2022. The next group will run from January 17 to February 11, 2022.

Who were your students?

  • Ilaria and Davide from Italy, Sueli from Brazil, Rumeysa from Turkey, Jessy from Indonesia and Anna from Romania. They were all beginners in French, except Sueli who had some good basics in French.

How did you work with this group?

  • In fact, I adapted to their levels in French and I progressed according to what was happening in the class, the motivations and the needs of each student.

We have seen all the tenses and French grammar up to A2 level. We worked on French vocabulary allowing us to present ourselves (our qualities, our flaws, our passions), to speak about our close relations, our origins, our life and our work, but also about our hobbies. We were also able to talk about projects and work on the resume. Ilaria and Davide were looking for a job. We helped them (in French).

We also saw the history of Paris, of the districts, and of French language…

There was a very warm atmosphere in our French classes. Everyone had something to talk about, to say about life, love, work… One was hesitating in her love choices, the other was looking for her professional future. Any subject helped us progress in oral and written French throughout the different French lessons.

What is the ALIP touch that you brought to this French course?

  • Ah, we were close to celebrating Christmas, so we each had a secret friend to treat and on the last day we had a buffet and gave each other gifts (we had to guess who the secret friend was and what the gift contained… in French!).

We also went on cultural trips in Paris and had lunch together at a restaurant.

The other specificity that I develop at ALIP is that I am a certified coach in personal and intercultural development. In times of covid, it is important to know how to welcome the person in his or her entirety with a lot of kindness and generosity.”
