"Things are going well back in France. I'm preparing for an exam in March, which is meant to recruit future English teachers nationwide. It is a contest that takes place once in a year so you better be ready when you take it! It includes some aspects of  Anglo-Saxon culture where literature, history and linguistics are concerned. It is a hard exam so I hope I will make it!"
