The English have arrived!

Welcome Jack and Janet

J² arrive at La Giraudière

As sad as it was to say goodbye to Jessse, we welcomed 2 new volunteers this week. Jack and Janet from England are spending a few weeeks here with us to improve their French and immerse themselves in the French culture!

Jack is our politics enthusiast from Devon! He loves a bit of “bant” and don’t get on the wrong side of him when it comes to scones (the jam MUST go on before the cream) Despite not speaking much French when he arrived, in the past few days he has picked up a lot of vocabulary and he feels like he is improving lots! After arriving earlier in the week, he deicded to take advantage of the local transport and spend a few days in Paris! He had a fabulous time but is happy to be back with the LG team.

Next we have our dancing queen Janet from just outside London!! She arrived last night, just in time for a boogie at the lake at the end of season concert. In Eilidh’s words “I hope to be as cool as  you are when I am your age”. After learning French for a year through conversation classes at home, she found LG on the internet and decided to come and spend 3 weeks with us. She is a keen gardener, so will be taking full advantage of our plants and land to show her artistic side.
