Welcome to Episode #43 of Profiles in Franceformation. I’m your host Allison Grant Lounes and today I’m speaking with Cherie Mitschke, a foreign language curriculum designer, and editor who moved to France in 2021 after working with Your Franceformation. She’s the editor of Allison’s very first French textbook Allez, Viens!, and currently works to develop language learning materials for French and Spanish for various publishers in Europe and the US. Welcome Cherie.

Cherie explains:

  • Where her affinity for the French language and French culture came from
  • How she and her husband made the decision to move to France in 2021
  • Her experience applying for a visa and first arriving in France, as well as her experience applying for a visa during COVID
  • Her advice to women dealing with administrative procedures in France, all due to a name change
  • What she loves most about living in France and what she has found challenging adjusting to within French culture
  • Where she sees herself in the next 5 years in France
  • The challenging aspects of French bureaucracy that she has experienced since moving abroad
  • What she has done to meet new friends in her French town
  • Her advice for anyone wishing to move to France
