Today was the first full day of school in France and I survived it!! I actually really like my school. It’s about the same size as Jackson and the teachers are very nice. It’s located in les hauts de Chambéry which is about 10 minutes by bus to the center of town. Here are a few things I learned on the first day:
1. Classes change every day. For example, you might have history 3 times a week, English 4 times a week, economics 2 times a week etc…
2. Students AND teachers change classes. This was strange for me because the classroom walls are bare here because the teachers change rooms too!!
7. It’s hard to speak French when everyone is trying to speak in English with you because they know you’re American. 😜
So far I’m loving school here, even though it’s only been the first day! I’m making lots of new friends and improving my French!
