Lumière

So, I am getting on with the French lessons. In the 10th week. Mostly it’s all been learning the feminine and masculine words. Occasionally I get a verb!

The word Lumière means ‘light’ and was first claimed by the French in the 12th century. It gained new meaning during le siècle des Lumières (the Age of Enlightenment) of the 18th century, symbolising the illumination of human intellect after the ‘dark’ Middle Ages.
