Update: Radio-Canada and Some Awfully Nice People

You can listen to an audio of my interview here with Patrick Garneau on “Pourquoi pas dimanche?” on Radio-Canada, June 5th, 2011.

It was a great experience. They were extremely friendly and curious, and very gracious for my occasional mishap with the French language; I was quite nervous, actually, as my usual French vocabulary does not extend to academic terms.

I read a study on polyglots that claimed a little bit of alcohol can sometimes ease the inhibitions of speakers of second languages. I can confirm that, as a beer on a terrasse erases my hesitations when speaking French.

But somehow tipping a bottle at 9 a.m. on a Sunday morning seemed ill-advised.

Merci à l’équipe de “Pourquoi pas dimanche?”!
