More Snow and More Vacation

Rhône-Alpes is supposed to get more snow on Friday. The forecast says neige forte, and they’re predicting around 6 inches for Chambéry.  Good thing I don’t have to go anywhere and David’s work is only a few blocks away so he can walk. I’m already back on (paid) vacation after two days of phonetics exams (for which I will be paid overtime).  Eleven more days off!

In the meantime, I’m going to try to get the rest of my lessons prepared for the entire semester and work on my website more. I am trying to respond to all the e-mails, but I’ve still got a long way to go. With upcoming trips to Germany and possibly Italy this summer, I want to focus more on those languages (and especially the comparative tutorials with French.)

I actually have some rather ambitious travel plans this spring & summer, and I can’t stop thinking about where to go and what to see. Darn you Rick Steves and your Europe video podcasts that make me want to see everything on this continent!

    Are you super psyched to get a nearly Michigan-style snowfall?! Unless they don’t know how to plow and salt there, in which case it’s just too penible.

    I love Rick Steves. He’s the coolest :)

    We didn’t actually get our snowstorm. :( I really miss Michigan snow, but mostly because of my parent’s big back yard that I can play in with the dog!

    You’re very welcome, Cynthia!

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 January 2010, I started focusing more on teaching and learning languages in general. 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 the university so these themes appear most often on the blog. I also continue to post about traveling (though now my trips are usually in Australia) and being an American abroad.
