FIA Addiction

Just when I decide I need to get off my computer and do things in the real world more often, I agree to start writing summaries of French in Action episodes for the FIA Wiki created by my new favorite blog, Mystère et boules de gomme ! I’m going to write up a new page for one or two episodes every day. I have all of the videos and the textbook full of transcripts, so it won’t take too long. And I’m going to justify my extra computer time by saying this will be a part of my daily French study time instead, which it really is!

    Totally. I’m going to have the FIA episodes memorized by the time I’m finished!Streaming downloads of HIMYM are here: http://www.tv-links.co.uk/listings/1/1609 and http://www11.alluc.org/alluc/tv-shows.html?action=getviewcategory&category_uid=8697Stage6 works best (they usually play immediately), while all the Tudou ones have Japanese or Chinese subtitles and you usually have to wait a while for them to load completely (or else watch the episodes in 1 minute intervals which is so annoying when you’re really impatient).You can also download episodes (and entire seasons in one file) through bittorrent… :)

    It’s tough blogging, I always set short term and long term goals – that way its a little easier to handle. (I’m a huge FIA fan!)

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.
