New Blog Alert – English Kid in France - Poitou-Charentes

poitou charentes  New Blog Alert   English Kid in France   because we all love reading blogs about life in FranceA new blog on the block that may be of interest to some of you is English Kid in France.

This is Ed’s blog and Ed says…

“My blog is about life in France from a child’s point of view. Having a bilingual life speaking French at school and English at home, growing up on a little fermette (small farm), and just generally living in France.”

By the way (and you’d never have guessed it), Ed is just 11 years old!

Now, I’m going to get round to reviewing it once Ed has got a few more posts on there but….

His Hot Tip of the Week

Or just catch up on his Blog?

Anyway, I’m sure it’s not for me to say but…

If any of you have children who are thinking about starting a blog (a great way for expat kids to keep up their written English skills?)…

Perhaps they might want to get in touch with Ed?

He seems to have made a great start!

All the best

    Thanks Keith – he thinks he is famous now! It would be lovely to find out the rest of Chief Inspector Haddock, but he does have a habit of starting and not finishing stories!

    Jacqui

    He IS famous!

    All the girlies will be after him now!

    People find that their lives are forever changed when they get mentioned on Garlic!

    All the best

    That explains why he has just got out of the pool with two bikini clad girlies then – I did wonder where they came from!

    Thanks for the tip on Ed’s blog about being an English kid in France. I have a 15 year old daughter who I have been trying to encourage to write a blog about her life here. It seems like such a great way to meet others and possibly get together with other kids her own age and in the same situation. So far she hasn’t taken me up on it, but maybe Ed can be of some encouragement!
    Thanks,
    Ashley

    Hi Ashley

    Great idea – take a look at Beth in France‘s daughter’s blog at tyainafrica.blogspot.com

    Pretty much the perfect example, I would say?

    Beth in France’s blog is at bethinburkina.blogspot.com

    I imagine that Presley would find it a great creative outlet and an excellent way to meet, electronically, other people in her situation (young expat in France.)

    Tell her that if I can do it… Anyone can!

    All the best

    Keith
