François Nourissier’s French quotes and translations

1. « Un couple qui réussit est un peu plus qu’un homme plus une femme. C’est un équilibre et un mouvement un peu mystérieux. » (François Nourissier)

“A couple who succeeds is a little more than a man and a woman. It’s a balance and a mysterious motion” (François Nourissier)

 

2. «Ce que les séducteurs apprennent sur le tard, c’est qu’ils ont toujours été séduits, c’est que toutes les femmes qu’ils ont eues, c’était des femmes qui voulaient les avoir.»(François Nourissier, Extrait d’un Entretien avec Bernard Pivot – Janvier 1979 )

“What the seducer learns later is that they were the ones who have always been seduced; it’s that all the women who they have had were women who wanted to have them.” (François Nourissier, Extrait d’un Entretien avec Bernard Pivot – Janvier 1979 )

 

3. «Poser sa candidature à l’Académie Française. Il faut beaucoup de modestie pour solliciter un suffrage et beaucoup d’outrecuidance pour considérer qu’on le mérite. C’est trop ou trop peu.»(François Nourissier, Extrait d’ A défaut de génie)

“Applying for a place at the French Academy: You need a lot of modesty to ask for a suffrage and a lot of impertinence to consider that you deserve it. It’s too much or too little.” (François Nourissier, Extrait d’ A défaut de génie)

 

4. «Etre écrivain, c’est la façon exemplaire, proclamée, de ne pas devenir un adulte.» (François Nourissier, Bleu comme la nuit)

“To be a writer; it’s the exemplary and proclaimed way of not becoming an adult.” (François Nourissier, Bleu comme la nuit)


5. «Si le goût des honneurs vient aux personnages vieillissants, c’est par logique et hygiène. Quand les reins se fatiguent il faut aimer les fauteuils. » (François Nourissier, Le Musée de l’homme)

 

“If the taste of honours comes to aging characters, it’s through logic and hygiene. When the loins are tired, you must like the armchairs.” (François Nourissier, Le Musée de l’homme)

6. «C’est le style qui crée réellement de la pensée.» (François Nourissier, Extrait d’un Entretien avec Bernard Pivot – Janvier 1979 )

“It’s the style that truly creates the thought.” (François Nourissier, Extrait d’un Entretien avec Bernard Pivot – Janvier 1979 )

By the end of this article, you will know what to do to earn a living with your French skills because this guide is going to reveal you a powerful list of jobs with French that you can do.

 

 

After learning French….So what?

As a native French speaker working in education, I am often asked by students many questions related to language jobs that they can do. The most common being:why do we need to learn French?  What jobs using French can we do? You might feel the same as those students at this point. But if you remember, I have shared with you in a previous article some of the benefits of learning French.

 

Studying French is compulsory in most secondary schools in the UK. It is only fair that you know the benefits of learning French and the job opportunities that come with it. Also many students, after taking their GCSE in French go on to study it further at a higher level because of their passion for the language. You might have instead self learnt French and you are in the same situation; you may be looking for a career change . After long years of tedious sacrifices and commitment to the language, I guess that you would also like to reap the benefits. They are just wondering what they can do with the skills learnt and developed and what the different jobs using French are.

 

Jobs with French for which a high level of ability in French is needed


Careers in translating, teaching or interpreting are the first three that obviously come to mind. The reason might be because for these jobs a high level of proficiency in French is often needed and this essential quality is generally needed on a daily basis. But other jobs which require language skills too.  If you read further you’ll find a list of jobs using French language. This brief overview of them is there to help you see the difference between each job.

  1. Translator: A translator translate and interpret the written words into another language
  2. Interpreter: An interpreter has for task to translate and interpret the spoken words said by someone to a tiers person and into a language understood by the tiers person. The interpreting is done on the spot. This means that the interpreter must be able to remember what is being said and provide quickly the equivalent message in the other language.
  3. French Teacher: A teacher teaches
    students to speak, read and write in French and often needs a recognised teaching qualification to do so.
  4. Freelance writer writing educational or other books targeting people learning French in non French speaking countries.
  5. Editor: The editor makes some suggestions on how to alter the original content of a piece of writing and looks at idioms, syntax and other specific particularities of languages. The editor double checks style and content.
  6. Proof-reader: A proof-reader double checks a text for accuracy. She makes some suggestions on how to correct spelling, grammar and vocabulary mistakes.

7.   Voice overs/voice talents: They usually work in the media industry and read television, radio, film or video’s scripts

8.   EAL learning support assistant (also called Teaching Assistant): An EAL (English as an Additional Language) learning support assistant helps students for whom English is an additional language and translates in their primary language the different teacher’s instructions and explanations. This helps the students in better accessing the curriculum in a language which is not their mother tongue.

9.   Foreign language assistant: A foreign Language assistant is attached to a specific school and works with the MFL (Modern Foreign Languages) department only. They have for task to provide support to students in French and help them to discover more about the French culture from a native speaker point of view and experiences.

10.  French tutor: Tutors generally do the same as teachers.  But they often work on a one to one basis and often without any teaching qualification. Contrary to a teacher, they can choose to specialise in only one area of the French language say for instance “French conversation” to develop learners’ fluency and confidence in French.
