I am a bit of a fraud here. I am French, but I have lived many years in the UK, mostly Scotland now.
I have also tried on two occasions to start a new life of my own, knowing not a soul and arriving with no job, no flat and totally on my own, to South West France, twice. Twice I missed the UK, mostly Scotland and also after a culture shock of re adapting to my people AND the South French (I m from Paris originally), I slowly realised that not much was happening in my life apart from enjoying a long holiday feeling, being half of the time unemployed, and meeting few people… Or rather, never moving to the friend stage. Like being invited to a garden while the French ‘friend’ closes all the doors and shutters of her house in a rush in case I peek inside.
Anyhow, I moved back to soggy cold Scotland, which I never thought would happen again after driving away in ecstasy from it with pets and suitcases in the car heading for blue skies and mountains…
I am now once again thinking of that risky emigration. But not the South. O NO, this time, I would like possibly Brittany. I dont need the 40 degrees summers of the South, nor its parched earth nor… Well I prefer not to list details of the solid incompatibility between the mediterraneans and myself.
So my plan is, since I am a university and a private French tutor here, to be a French tutor in Brittany. Privately and a Language school tutor too if that is possible.
My question is therefore: do you think, those of you who live in that area, that there would be a demand for French lessons ?
I am thinking possibly Vannes… Or Rennes.
