Ça va? Salut de France! I’m learning so many valuable lessons to bring back to the classroom through my travels here in Paris.
1.) It’s intimidating trying to speak a new language! (Good to remember when my students are scared to speak)
2.) It is so much easier when you have some “survival phrases” handy! (Thanks to Kara for sending me a much needed list WITH pronunciation help)
It’s a great way to learn though- getting lost, trying to figure out the metro, and trying to find a hotel. No PDs, no worksheets, no teacher… but I’m learning AND having fun! On my way to Italy tonight on the night train. I’ll start my crash course Italian then. Wish me luck!
