about my plan to go back to France and teach EFL instead of staying here and teaching FFL. I sent out an e-mail to the IFE people just asking some questions about the Masters with Internship program and I got some pretty positive answers back. So I’m thinking of filling my spare semester with that (in which case that would be fall 09). Only issues are 1) should it relate directly to my masters report? 2) how to do that if so? I mean technically I am specializing in teaching French here, not English. But my immediate career goal is to go back over there and teach English. The other option is to intern with a study abroad program for Americans over there. That could be fruitful. Thoughts?
Other question: exactly how to explain it all and convince the advisors (who are very nice people)?
Hung out with MA, couchsurfing ex-assistant, today looking for books in French. We discovered there are none in town, except a few children’s books at Book People downtown, which we were actually pretty impressed with. So we think we will be ordering French books from Intellectual Property on the Drag, who promised us they’ll order us anything at no charge. Now, recommendations for recent fiction/literary books in French? That are not by Amelie Nothomb? (I have nothing against Amélie Nothomb it’s just that I would like to branch out.) Only hitch in the book club plan is that she might be moving to Zambia. But it would at least get me started.
