    Ohh, that looks like so much fun!

    It’s Reims, so a little too far to commute for you I think, sorry :-(

    Ben’s uncle works for the rectorat in Annecy, I’ll ask him if he thinks they’ll be needing recrute locals next year if you want.

    I think it’s funny that Andromeda and I both want to come and live to far away… oi. Take lots of photos and we’ll feel like we were there!

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.
