Livret du Citoyen

Hi, does anyone know where I can buy a copy of the official ‘livret du citoyen’ ? When I look at somewhere like Amazon I find an amazing assortment of ‘versions’ or analytical tomes.

Thanks !

You do not need to buy it, you can download it.

I was just posting the same link as Sandcastle… so I’ve deleted mine.

Good luck with your progress…

Yes, just download it.

And if for preparation for your entretien then this thread has a link to a good YouTube piece on the questions, and my revision document. Both based on the livret.

Thanks !

Do not just learn what is in the ‘Livret du Citoyen’, it is only, from my experience, a very rough guide. Read it and learn it but be very prepared for some seemingly off the wall question at your eventual interview. It is a while since I have looked, or needed to look, at the livret but it is well worthwhile learning a great deal more than is in the published document. In the history section, I was asked questions about both the Palaeolithic & the Neolithic ages, or rather about significant sites, I was also asked as to if I knew why the Siege and Battle of Alésia was important and who were the principle characters.
As Philosophy is a constant in France it is worth throwing in a few that are not listed in the pamphlet, as are notable ‘foreigners’ that made France their home and added to it’s rich culture, some are listed but it is worth knowing something extra about those, people like Dalida and Marc Chagall popped up during my interview.
Read well and remember, it will do you well.

I have just remembered a question that I was asked, “name a famous Englishman, it was stressed Englishman, who died in France”.

who did you come up with ??
I thought of Oscar Wilde, but he’s Irish… then, of course… Edward viii

Richard the Lionheart.

Presumably they don’t mind a selection… :wink:

The question stated famous, so David Davies who fell under a trolley bus in Limoges would not count. :grinning:

depends what is rated as famous… it would make an interesting conversation if the Examiner disagreed with one’s suggestion…

The obvious one to me is Princess Diana! But perhaps a touch rude to remind the interviewer that?

It will just depend what pops into one’s mind when the question is asked…

An awful lot of British people died in France in WW1 and WW2 but most (like my great uncle Fred) weren’t famous of course. I wonder if poets would count? Rupert Brooke for instance…
