    Looks fantastic, I’ll definitely be referring back to your site when I start on French (no clue when that’ll be but I’m definitely going to do it), and I wish you the best of luck with this.

    Looks great. Wondering if you have an affiliate program through ejunkie?  Would love to feature this guide as part of The Everyday Language Guides site.


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.


The 2nd edition of French Language Tutorial is available as a PDF book. It has been updated with much more vocabulary, sample sentences, and cultural information, plus extended vocabulary lists, cross-referenced topics, and an alphabetical index.
