Yeah, essays nearly finished wooooo! Was back in the "oxford mindset" I guess today, spinning out a few thousand words this afternoon, feels good. To reward myself am gonna go to Biarritz for (God willing) some sunshine and sea for a couple of days this weekend, last trip away....
So off out tonight to book that and watch a French film...we just realised there is like a whole load of French films we havent seen yet so gonna try and crack through some of them these net couple of weeks.
Oh and funny story today. Teaching food to my CE1/CE2 class, and little L trying to say "ice-cream" somehow (and completely innocently) gets the word "sex" out of her mouth, loud and clear, no denying it. I seriously had to fight back a laugh, especially when I saw a little grin come over the (not very smiley) teacher's face at the back of the room. It went over most of the kids heads although a few started murmering, and V got as far as "AHHHH, elle a dit un gros mot....ca, ca veut dire....." at which point I yelled "Valentine" very loudly to get her to shut up and cover up whatever she was about to say. Luckily she got the hint.
My CM1CM2 class asked how many lessons of English we had laughed and there were a few "ah non, c'est dommage..." which is nice. And yesterday when I was leaving Zola, little M-E was like following me though the playground grabbing hold of my bag and telling me that she really didn't want English to stop and that she was going to do German but now shes really happy he did English because she loves English.
