Links from the Australian Teachers of French Conference

The conference I attended in Perth at the beginning of April was The Federation of Australian Teachers of French Associations Biennial Conference and the Teachers of  French Association of Western Australia Annual Stage. I presented my research on the gap between what applied linguists recommend for inclusion in textbooks and what is actually in the textbooks regarding vocabulary (more on that later), but for now here are some links from presenters/sponsors/speakers:

  • Frenchteachers – new blog for Australian teachers of French by l’Ambassade de France en Australie
  • Hearsay Language Learning Downunder – using the Accelerative Integrated Method or AIM to teach languages with gestures, plays, songs, etc.
  • Le Forum – French bookshop in Fremantle
  • The Language Centre Bookshop – lots of language learning and teaching resources in Leederville
  • Joe Dale – creating a Personal Learning Network using social media, such as Twitter, to connect with other educators
  • Shay Stafford – former dancer at the Moulin Rouge and author of Memoirs of a Showgirl

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.
