Two months

I can’t believe it’s almost December. The past 2 months have flown by. I’ve already received my second paycheck and there are only 3 more full weeks of class before Christmas vacation.

I’ve been really enjoying my work here in France. The teachers and students are nice, and a lot of them earnestly want to learn English. I’ve also been baby-sitting a 2.5 year old on weekends for extra money. His parents speak English, but they want a native speaker around so he won’t have an accent when he grows up.

I finally went swimming in the famous Seynod piscine this week. There were a lot of people there, and the jacuzzi wasn’t as warm as I thought it would be, so I didn’t stay very long. But now I can say I have been to the piscine!

The weather has been getting colder, but it’s still not too cold. Even today with the rain, it’s almost 50 degrees F out. I hope the winter is just as mild…

I’ve been working more on my thesis, but I still have a long way to go. It’s hard to concentrate on it while I’m also constantly preparing lessons and attempting to improve my French.

A plus tard !

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.
