1. Keep your lips to yourself – You may have heard in France locals great one another with a kiss on each cheek, when in Montpellier greet people as though you are in Manchester. A handshake and a smile are sufficient! 2. In a professional situation in France there is no such thing as small talk...

I’ve been a bit quiet lately (sorry!) and the truth is I’ve had a dreadful few weeks. It started out with my weekend in Strasbourg when I arrived to rain and bitter wind and also in the full grip of a dreadful cold. Then my phone broke. Then when I fixed my phone, I could no longer connect...

              My homesickness varies. Sometimes I just want to be home, on a comfy couch watching a real television. But most of the time I feel fine. I love living on my own, I love the peace and quiet, and I love being able to do what I want, when I want. Weirdly,...

                  If someone tells you they’ve never been homesick, they’re lying. The yearn for comfort and familiarity is something that comes to everyone at one point or another when you make a big move away from home. Whether it’s...

Teaching is something I’ve always said I didn’t want to do as a profession. I don’t particularly know exactly why; I had some amazingly inspiring teachers at school and had mountains of respect for them for doing what they do, but for me it never looked like a future. So, I was as surprised...

                As much as I have loved my time in Lyon, it is time for me to leave my home away from home and to say goodbye to some fond memories and firm friends. Granted most of them left in December when the semester ended, but it was my own decision...

My year abroad is coming to an end, and I’m not quite sure how I feel about it. I’ve been at home for just over a week as it’s the school holidays and, if I’m totally honest, I think I could have spent these two weeks in Paris. It’s only been since after Christmas that everything...

I’ve been studying French for nearly 10 years, and for this entire time I’ve always reassured myself that when I move abroad, I’ll become fluent. Although I never expected this to happen overnight, I think I did kind of expect it to happen almost effortlessly. I thought being exposed...

The stereotypes are correct, the films don’t lie and our perceptions of small town France are, surprisingly, very much close to the truth. Living in a rural French town is just as sleepy as you’d imagined it to be. Having spent the last four months in a much larger area (the sound of sirens...
