Bienvenue à la classe de français.----

France has many interesting sites to see.  Presently, all French classes are learning about the modern structure of The Eiffel Tour.

The Eiffel Tour is named after Gustave Eiffel, who also designed the Statue of Liberty. According to Wikipedia, Gustave Eiffel was a civil engineer, who designed the Eiffel Tour for the World’s Fair of 1889. 

According to the official website of www.toureiffel.paris the Tour is repainted every 7 years by hand.  There are 25 painters who repaint it, which takes anywhere from 18 months to 2 years. They use 1500 brushes and 60 tons of paint.  The paint is called “Eiffel Tour Brown.”  The budget is around 4 million euros. They started the last repainting in October 2018 and they do not close the Tour to the public while repainting.  It stays open during the process.

Bonne Journée des classes de Français,
