Salut. J'suis enseignante d'anglais langue etrangere au lycee de Pittsburgh. Ca fait presque deux ans que je suis a Pittsburgh et elle me plait beaucoup. Avant, je vivait a NYC ou j'ai enseignais le francais au lyceens. Enchantee!

What most interests you about the the various French-speaking cultures? Their cuisine, their cinema, their music? Or simply the French language?

J'sais plus si je peux choisir. Surement, j'aime la langue mais a part ca la musique, le cine, la litterature ( meme si ca fait un bon moment que je n'en avais rien lu.) J'aime la diversite des cultures francophones.

If you speak French, what is your proficiency level? False beginner, advanced beginner, intermediate, advanced, native?

Je dirais avance, mais j'en utlise tres peu maintenant

What types of activities are you likely to participate in? Weekly conversation groups, movie nights at a movie theatre or a member's home, brunch or dinner, potlucks at a member's home, French-lang book club, symphony/opera of France, suggestions?

groupes de convo et litterature, soirees au cine, etc.

If you have spent time in a French-speaking country, where was it and what was your reason for being there?

-semester in Toulouse -1 year in St. Julien en Genevois outside of Geneva (teaching english in elementary schools -1 summer in Geneva taking refresher classes at the university

Would you care to share an anecdote as to what first inspired your interest in French, or perhaps an interesting story from your travels abroad?

phonemes matter ;-) It makes the difference between "compote" and "capote"
