I have started to understand that a work Christmas party in the UK, and indeed in many other English-speaking countries, is very different to the kind of parties that happen in France. For a start, they usually involve a lot of alcohol. And sometimes they really take place in the office. This depends on how generous your company is, but I know when I worked in London, we had a wild and crazy Christmas party in the office.
If you ever have the chance to go to work party hosted by British (or Irish or definitely our party friends the Australians,) this is what you might expect. Just stay away from the photocopier...
My blog has changed! If you're looking for my English-practice exercises, they're all still here, just look in the archives.
