What la rentrée really means to me.

Tomorrow, September 2nd, students in France go back to school. Do you know what this means?

I can finally go to the places I want without being surrounded by annoying kids!!!

La rentrée is the most wonderful time of the year.

    Did you see the article in the New York Times about la rentree and how everyone is depressed because the economy is not good? They had some columnist from Elle commenting in this very overly dramatic French way, I thought it was really funny. Not good journalism because they didn’t talk about why the economy is bad, just that it is bad, but you know, funny all the same, for me at least.

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.
