Helle ladies and gents!!!
Pleasure to make your acquaintances!!! Geez, feels great to write in English! Haven't had the opp for a while now! Let me introduce myself, I was born and raised in Montreal, Quebec. My mum is English and my dad is French Canadian. I was blessed to have both languages be a part of our household!! A few years back, I met a Frenchman in my hometown and fell head over heals (I know, I know, lolll). We have since had a daughter and have chosen to raise her in the south of France after 4 years of trying in Montreal. I have very little family there as most have moved off, the healthcare system is wack and don't get me started on our schools!! We arrived last year in early June and I have been trying to get myself adapted since. I must admit, although I speak the language, there is still a barrier to get through. Our expressions are quite different as is our vocabulary, but in general it's good. What I've found difficult is finding work... that pays... But I've remained positive and I'm sure something will happen shortly!! :o)
I would love to make some contacts in my area and find some English speaking friends to share with, question of not feeling so alienated as well as being able to speak the language I'm most comfortable with!! Please don't be shy, I'd love to hear your stories and where your from! And if I can be of any help to anyone in regards to French language courses, again I'd be pleased to lend a hand!
In hopes of hearing from you soon!
