Salut tout le monde ! My name is Julia and I’m a Canadian, twenty-something recent university grad with a degree in French language and literature and a love for all things French. I had the opportunity to spend eight months studying abroad in Dijon, France in 2012-2013, where I had an amazing time exploring, improving my French skills, and yes, consuming a fair bit of Burgundy wine and mustard. This fall, I will have yet another opportunity to live in the land of baguettes and escargots for eight months, this time as an English-language teaching assistant in Domfront, Lower Normandy. On this blog, I will chronicle my adventures as I once again attempt to navigate the language barriers, administrative issues (oh, the dreaded administration française !), and cultural differences that make up the country I get to call home once more.
