Almost Bilingue. No, that’s not a spelling mistake. “Bilingue” is how to say “bilingual” in French.


I’m Shannon, an American who has been living in France since 2007. I arrived to spend a year as an English language assistant (with the TAFIP program) in Chauny (Picardie), but each year turned into “just one more year”. After three years as an assistant and two years as a lecturer at a university in Valenciennes, I completed a Masters at a French university. I’m currently try to find a place for myself in the French employment world.

I’m no stranger to the blogging world but have just arrived over at WordPress as a fresh start for my blogging life.

Currently living in Lille with my French husband and our “bilingual” dog, I still find myself twisting my tongue over this complicated language.

Will I ever be completely bilingual? Join me in my adventures to find out!

  1. Just discovered your blog! Enjoying the posts and as a Canadian 20-something living in Fives for the semester (master’s student in Lille) I can definitely relate. Just thought I’d say thanks for blogging 🙂


  2. Hi Shannon, I discovered your blog through a comment you made on Diane’s Oui in France blog and took a little look around. I wondered if you’d like to link up a post to my monthly blog linky (which Diane always links up to) which is on now #AllAboutFrance (you can find it by clicking on the badge on the right side bar of my blog or through the badge on Diane’s post about healthcare in France for example). What you write about is perfect for the link-up! Drop me a line if you need more info (through my blog, Twitter, FB…)
