French/English Sentence: Ce matin, les élèves ont appris à compter à rebours de 20 à 0 pour travailler leur mémoire. | This morning the pupils learned to count backward from 20 to 0 to work on their memory.

French/English Sentence: Mon oncle est réputé pour être radin ; il a beaucoup d’argent mais il a peur de le dépenser. | My uncle is well-known for being stingy; he has a lot of money, but he’s afraid to spend it.

naguere; /nuh-gwhere/; adverb: years past

French/English Sentence: L’école de naguère était bien plus difficile que celle d’aujourd’hui ; il était très dur d’obtenir son diplôme. | Schooling in the past was much more difficult than today’s; it was very hard to get your diploma.
