Parler dans sa barbe [ speaking to one’s beard | signifies talking softly ], Attendre 107 ans waiting 107 years | signifies waiting for a long time ], Etre fleur bleue [ being a blue flower | signifies being sentimental or naive ] – French is full of vividly visual expressions! Discovering such expressions is a fun means of exploring and savouring the idiosyncracies of the language. It is with this purpose that Anne-Claire Lévêque and Emilie Camatte conducted a series of workshops across India thanks to the combined effort of Alliance Française Hyderabad and the French Institute in India!

Anne-Claire is a freelance journalist who specializes in youth literature. Toying with the French language and juggling with words and expressions are her favourite writing techniques. Emilie is an illustrator with a penchant for travelling, especially in India. Her passion for photography enables her to make journals of her voyages which present her feelings with pictures, collages, and watercolours. Together, they conducted several workshops on Writing and Illustration techniques for Storytelling. These workshops were fun learning experiences for the participants and were highly appreciated! The texts and illustrations thus produced will be shortlisted and compiled in a book which will be published soon.
