Well, I really thought that I’d rounded up all of this season’s blogging new Assistants and Students in France?
However, it would appear that there are a few, hiding at the back of the classroom, hoping to go unnoticed!
We really can’t allow that, now can we?
So, tighten your girdles and…
Gird your loins and…
Prepare to meet the last of this year’s intake!
Firstly is Victoria who comes from Richmond (I assume that’s somewhere in America rather than the Richmond in Surrey?) and is going to be be teaching little froggies how to speak American in Saint-Brieuc which, as we recently leaned, is the wild bear capital of France!
During the winter months, wild bears (the small Breton type) are often known to wander into town in search of something warm and bloody to eat!
Still, I expect that Victoria knows all about that and has come prepared?
She seems to have been preparing for something; at least if this photo of her sat in a bar with a big glass of beer is anything to be going by?
Victoria is blogging about her adventure at VICTORIA CÔTES-D’ARMOR.
I certainly wish Victoria all the best for her time in Saint-Brieuc and hope that she blogs all about it (warts and all) for our pleasure!
Rachel, however has decided to test out her language teaching skills in Marseille and is blogging about her adventures at On y va.
She describes herself as… “I’m pretty weird, but in a good way. I’m pretty shy until you get to know me then I probably won’t ever shut up. I have fairly eclectic taste in movies, music, books, life in general and I love it.”
To which I can only say…
“Rachel, we’re all pretty weird in France – don’t worry, you’ll fit in fine!”
If any of you want to pop in and say a big warm “Hello and welcome to France” to Rachel I’m sure she’d love to hear from you!
And she’s writing about her experiences in Toulouse at Bavarder en France.
She has been in France for almost a week and, on her stopover in London she discovered that….
“The pronunciation of urinal: In England, they pronounce it Ur-RI-nal (like rhino). However, they say urine the same way we do. I proposed that since our pronunciation of urinal was closer to that of urine, it was better than theirs. Winner (in my mind): me.”
Which I see as an excellent omen for an excellent blog!
Lindsay, keep up the good work!
Nichole at Faim en France is heading for Lille and is already dreaming about being in France!
Ad, just to make sure that everything goes smoothly…
Is already learning…
Nichole, you’ve got your head screwed on – concentrating on the important things first!
Welcome to France and…
I hope that you have a wonderful time!
Finally, Chloe is moving to Serris (which is somewhere east of Paris, I believe) and is blogging about her experiences there (or will be, once she arrives) at Adventures of an Inspired Soul.
It appears that she’s bringing a pair of horse riding boots with her, so she’ll be OK!
Chloe, welcome to France and I hope that you have a wonderful time!
All the best
