For Halloween's eve, enjoy a dialogue written by students in Professor Guido Furci's Advanced Writing and Speaking course who conjured a conversation between Roman Egyptian mummy masks. Well done and merci to students Elli Bergren, Laura Maria Bou Delgado, Emily Brown, Maria Chroneos, Miles Clark, Joshua Clarke, Julin Justin, Stephen Langer, Victoria Marlin, Willah Peers, and Naomi Rodgers.

Dialogue avec un masque –
● Étudiant de FLE(French as a Foreign Language) : « Ça va ? »
○ Masque : « Je suis mort depuis des siècles, ça va pas plus que ça. »
● Étudiant de FLE : « Pourtant vous avez l’air en forme, exception faite de quelques rides. Mais je sais bien que c’est la pierre et non votre peau. »
○ Masque : « Monsieur, vous me flattez ! Ne seriez-vous pas en train de me draguer..? »
● Étudiant de FLE : « C’est bientôt Halloween… Sortir avec un masque, ce serait trop la classe ! »

Translation (by Eric Bulakites):
Dialogue with a mask –
● FLE Student : “How are you?”
○ Mask : “I’ve been dead for centuries, how do you think it’s going?”
● FLE Student : “But you look so good, except for a few wrinkles. But I know that it’s just the stone and not your skin.”
○ Mask : “Sir, you flatter me! Are you flirting with me..?”
● FLE Student : “Halloween’s coming… Going out with a mask would be so cool!”
