The Art of Verbs / L’art de conjuguer :‘Le Triangle de John’ An introduction to a new analysis of French verbs conjugation
Friday September 27th 2013, 6pm
When he started to learn French, John McCarthy struggled with verbs endings and ended up analysing the French verb structure. This led him to create a visual pattern and a brand new system, which he named “Le Triangle de John”. With the help of the well-known artist Walter Kershaw and of a French language specialist, Cyrille Rollet, he created an eBook based on his analysis.
The three of them will present their work at the Alliance Francaise. This will be followed by a discussion with the audience.
John McCarthy has a PhD in bio-chemistry and is a GP.
Walter Kershaw is a Rochdale artist renowned for his mural paintings. He produced considerable works in the UK and South America and did several paintings connected to France (including a piece on the Père Lachaise cemetery in Paris).
Cyrille Rollet has a Master in Linguistics, a Master in French as a Foreign Language and a PGCE. He has been a teacher at the Alliance Française de Manchester since 2006.
