Salut mes amis! As some of you are getting ready to go to France for the TAPIF Program (Teaching Assistant Program in France), I’ve been uploading videos on the subject as I know how hard and stressful it can be to find info on the little details of the program. So, if you’re getting ready to be a TAPIF assistant, you can head over to our YouTube channel for the 4-part (so far) video series. Hope this is helpful to some of you and please let me know if you have any questions as you’re preparing for this great adventure! Bisous, Alexa
Hello friends! In honor of Bastille Day yesterday, I decided to talk about my favorite things about France. From the fresh baguettes and pastries to the awesome public transportation system, there’s so much I love about living in France. Check out my top 5 favorite French things in the video below:
Hello friends, I’ve officially entered into my last month in France and am currently enjoying the last vacances of the year. After this last two week break, I’ll have one week left of teaching at my lycée. The sadness of my impending departure and having to say goodbye to the students and teachers is already starting to set in, but I’m also buzzing with nervous excitement (read: anxiety) while figuring out what I’ll be doing next. To kick off this vacation, I headed over to visit my friend, Kristen, in England. Kristen and I met at Hillsong Paris while we were both studying abroad back in 2015. It was so nice to take my mind off of the future and job applications for a couple of days. She showed me around Canterbury and University of Kent. We had a classic British uni night out, went to tea, grabbed a chippy, hung out in a bookshop for way too long and ended the weekend by watching “Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging.” Check out the vlog and photos …
Here’s to the new year.
