|Explore Western Europe France Provence|
When we discovered this particular trip to Aix en Provence, we were very excited. Not only would we be living, in almost total immersion in the French language for four weeks, but, for the most part, we would be looking after ourselves. We would do our own shopping, which meant we would have to learn quickly, not only to understand what the locals said to us, or asked us, but we would also have to learn how to ask them for the information we needed. That sounded scary, but also excitingly challenging. Both my wife and I had had high school French, but, that had been more years back in the past, than we were willing to admit -- even to ourselves.
Still, on the positive side, every week, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, we would have three hours of practical, mostly oral French lessons.
Well, we decided to jump into the 'pool' of French immersion.
THE REST OF OUR ADVENTURES WILL BE PUBLISHED AS THEY ARE READY.
