It has been quite some time since I’ve updated this blog! Since I last posted in September, I’ve graduated college and been accepted, with my girlfriend Elyse, to the teaching assistantship program in France. Organized by the French Ministry of Education, this program brings native English speakers into French classrooms to help in English language instructions. We are very excited for the experience, as it will help me to hone my French skills and experience French culture firsthand.
We have started a shared blog to share our experiences with you. We don’t leave until mid-September, but we’ve already begun to blog about our expectations/background information on the place we’ll be living. Some posts will be written collaboratively, but we will also write many individually. Just like on this blog, I intend to share lots of photos and videos along the way.
Here is the link to the new blog: http://www.elyseandgarthinfrance.wordpress.com.
If you go there, you’ll find under the first post instructions for how to subscribe via email, so that you can get updates whenever we write a new post. I hope to see you subscribe to the France blog so we can keep in touch and share experiences.
