Copenhagen for the Weekend

I am leaving once again. This time I’m off to Copenhagen to meet up with one of my oldest friends from Michigan. The weather forecast looks gloomy but I’m definitely looking forward to seeing Jessica (she just got her PhD, so it’s Dr. Jessica now!) and being in Scandinavia for the first time. We might even take the train to Sweden to visit Malmö, but I’m sure there is plenty to do and see in København alone.

I will upload lots of photos and realia for learning dansk as soon as I get back on Monday. In the meantime, don’t forget to vote for Jennie in France in the Top 100 Language Learning Blogs 2010 at Lexiophiles! Tak!

    I miss Europe where it's so easy to hop on another country for a couple of days…!

    How funny! I was just there last weekend and found it to be amazing. I actually thought of your blog à la Realia, and was going to ask you if you wanted anything, but since you are going you'll probably find lots of amazing stuff! Hope you have a great trip and I can't wait to hear what you think of it. For me, it was a total breath of fresh air.

    Yeah, every time I feel homesick and think I want to live in the US again, I just think, no Easyjet! no foreign countries within 1-2 hours!

Why is Jennie no longer in France?

I created this blog in September 2006 when I moved to France from Michigan to teach English. Many of the earlier posts are about my personal life in France, dealing with culture shock, traveling in Europe and becoming fluent in French. In July 2011, I relocated to Australia to start my PhD in Applied Linguistics. Although I am no longer living in France, my research is on foreign language pedagogy and I teach French at a university so these themes appear most often on the blog. I also continue to post about traveling and being an American abroad.
