Each week you’ll be able to join our French bloggers who will be updating you on their language-learning adventure from two very different parts of France: Scott is studying in the southern city of Toulouse, and Rose is teaching English in a secondary school in St-Brieuc, Brittany.
Bonjour, tout le monde! My name is Rose and I’m from Glasgow in Scotland. I study History and French at university, and I’m lucky enough to be spending a year abroad in Brittany in northern France. I enjoy vintage shopping, writing, going to the cinema and I love live music! I’m excited to meet people during my year abroad and to sample some of the local delicacies – so far, I could live off the bread here. I also can’t wait to explore the fishing villages and beaches along the pretty Breton coastlines. I am a bit worried about understanding my pupils at the lycée where I’m teaching English though – or maybe I should be worried about them understanding me! À bientôt, Rose x
Bonjour! My name is Scott, I’m 23 years old and I’m from the southwest of Scotland. I study International Business with Modern Languages at the University of Strathclyde and I’m currently on my year abroad, studying on exchange at Toulouse Business School. From an early age I was always interested in languages and now, a little older and wiser, I am just as passionate about actively promoting the benefits of learning about different languages and cultures – I think it is a wonderful way to broaden the mind and learn more about the world we all live in.
In my spare time I also enjoying playing the guitar, playing golf, socialising, listening to music and I’m also a bit of a movie buff – my favourite movie is L.A. Confidential. As well as being excited to see all which my year abroad in Toulouse has to offer and to try out and improve upon my French skills, I am also very much looking forward to sharing my experiences with you through my blog posts. À bientôt!
