Google Translate spoke on my behalf. Never been outside Paris. Always stay at a small hotel on rue des Ecoles, a short walk from the Pantheon. Wish I can read Les Rougon-Macquart: Histoire naturelle et sociale d’une famille sous le Second Empire in the original, in Zola’s recommended reading order. Still have a long way to go. Maybe I should try looking at it the way Dumas did when he had D’Artagnan say that English is little more than badly pronounced French.
