The True North strong and free!

Happy Canada Day to my Canadian friends and to those who just love all things Canadian (like me)!

I’ve been listening to the national anthem (in English and French, of course) and poking around canada.com for a while now. This linguistics-related article was interesting: Canuck-speak like learning a new language Oh, Bob & Doug, I’ve missed you. And I can’t wait to go to Tim Horton’s when I’m home (because we have them in Michigan even though we’re not a part of Canada… at least not geographically.)

Have a Happy Canada Day, eh?

    Happy Canada Day to you, too!

    And thanks for giving me an instant and insane craving for a T. Ho’s maple-glazed doughnut. At nearly midnight. In a sleepy little town in the Hautes-Alpes.

    Le sigh.

    oh yay! i’m going to quebec in august… which in hindsight, it seems kind of silly because then right after i’m going to france. i should picked something not so similar to france so i’d have a more varied experience, but no matter! I hope they have Tim Horton’s in quebec.

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.
