Description: 

After displaying two copies of the attached document [see the image corresponding to this description, editor’s note] each one formatted as 120 x 80 cm.

The Niçois phrase "bati li tantiflas me!" is shouted at travelers and a spontaneous course of Niçois is initiated starting with "me bati, tantiflas" and other things from the shared everyday (leaving for work, the station platform). The course is based on an English translation of Niçois terms.
