I had been thinking about starting this section for a long time. After all, the whole purpose of the website was to talk about French / France, give lessons, tips and not exactly to focus on me.
I realized that a lot of what I do is actually a lot of who I am.
I received some questions and basically, the idea of talking a little more about myself (Annick) as a person what certainly going to be useful, at least to some of you.
So here I am!
I am a 25 years-old French native and I started Selfrench a little over a year ago, mainly because I was tired of being stuck (physically, geographically too) in a position where I couldn't teach or not really the way I wanted.
I was cooking in my in-law's restaurant (I hate cooking) and I thought that if I could make a living outside of "work" doing what I like and make a living from my passion, then I would be able to get out of the kitchen.
At this time, I was using some of my evenings to teach a small group of students in the cafeteria on the University campus where me, my husband and his family were working.
Fast-forward to today, I'm in France, getting a divorce, earning solely online and about to move to Barcelona.
A lot has changed in just a few months but I could hardly be happier. Teaching online has offered me a freedom I didn't think possible. I have so much more time on my hands than I used to.
I also try on various projects, more or less revolving around teaching French and they don't always go as planned (I had to stop my yearly planner project) but I really enjoy working on the blog and getting somewhere with it, a little step at a time.
Voilà, that's all for now! Let me know below if you have any questions for me!
A bientôt !
