A Travellerspoint blog

Institut de Francais, Villefranche, France

I decided to return to this school for the ninth time and was prepared to continue at the intermediate level. But with the encouragement of former classmate Susan Beckman and her help over the month before coming I am now in an Advanced class. After having completed the first three weeks I am very satisfied with my progress, like and feel very comfortable with my classmates and all is well. From previous posts, those who read my blog will already know how highly I think about the Institut, its methods and routine so I won't repeat myself except to say it attracts so many interesting people and spending a month on La Côte d'Azur is always more than a pleasure. And I was fortunate enough to celebrate my 85th birthday in Nice with good friends Roy and Carmelita Tucker and Samara McCarthy.

I am adding a few pictures including some taken at the Maeght Gallery in St Paul de Vence. Here in France the signs showing how fast you are driving change into either a smile or frown depending on your speed. I included a photo since I have been enjoying them.
