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!
