Grateful for Short Distance

This week I begin a 3 month course on teaching French as a Second Language. The course is part 2 and my aim in doing it is to receive some tips on how improve my teaching in a French Immersion class. The last time I did teaching methodology for French was when I was full time at university – and that was a while ago! The course requires me to attend classes on Wednesday evenings and on Saturday (for the full day). I will have to take notes, participate in group discussions, read articles, and do assignments. Yes, I will be busy. The classes, however, are not too far from where I live – ten minutes away is not a great distance 🙂

This week I am grateful that the course I wish to do is not too far. The reasons for this are many:

  • I will not be exposed to the cold winter elements for too long.
  • I will not arrive home too late.
  • I will be able to get the family’s dinner ready before I leave for class – and I will be able to eat the meal too.
  • On Saturdays I will be able to eat lunch with my family.

Thank you for last week’s contributions. I enjoy reading what others are grateful for – the posts make me think of other things I am happy to have in my life. Please remember to send me a pingback so that I know you have participated.

  1. best wishes with the class -and you have a such special job, I say that for most teachers – but especially ones in the younger years – and then with the double language – whew – such a cool job….


  2. Now you make me wish I was there just so I could enroll in your class Colline! I’ve always loved the French language. It’s such a beautiful language. 😀

    I am also grateful that this opportunity will create more time for you with your family and not such long hours. 😀 ♥

  3. You are amazing in your gratitude, Colline. My first reaction would be – oh no, busy Saturday, but you see a silver lining in everything 🙂 As for this week, I have a confession – it has been very exhausting, and demanding professionally, and not the best one health wise but on Wednesday (you see the day to be grateful for) I managed to pack my camera when getting ready for work as I had a business meeting in the centre of the town. When the meeting was over for once I decided to take my lunch break and I climbed an old tower at the very centre of Zagreb and took shots for the guest challenge this coming Thursday. 🙂 Btw, thanks for asking, Colline 😀

    1. I am glad you took some time out for yourself Paula to do something that you enjoy doing. I look forward to seeing the pictures you took – they are sure to be stunning.


  4. Good luck with your course Colline. Maybe you can help me with my French … I’ve only lived in France for 10 years and I’m still hopeless! I put it down to learning being harder when you’re older. Well it’s a good excuse. I’m thankful that I had the opportunity to live here though. 🙂
