And now for the “study” part of Study Abroad. Classes began Tuesday. I am taking French Romantic Arts and Basic French Conversation. Both are invigorating and challenging.
Let me just say that it has been so fun to be in the classroom with these students as a student myself rather than a teacher. They are from all over the US and range from sophomores to seniors needing this class to meet their credit requirements to graduate. It has been fun getting to know them. And there’s something about having to do homework (instead of having to grade) that’s just a little bit more fun. Tomorrow we are looking at a key moment in the French Revolution, and I have to play the role of a member of the Jacobin Club. Since I don’t even know what the Jacobin Club was, I had better get busy!
