There are a lot of exciting things in store for the New York-er over the next month.
First of all, through the month of May and part of June, I will be studying French at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon. It’s a five-week French immersion program that I applied to through EXPLORE, a bursary program sponsored by the Canadian government to help students in high school and post-secondary institutions to improve in their conversational French. The program at USask is accredited by the Council of Ministers of Education Canada and it is looking to be a lot of fun – on the trip, I’ll actually get the opportunity to go camping in Banff, Alberta, which I am particularly excited for.
What that means for my blog is that for the duration of my time in Saskatchewan, all of my blog posts will be in french! I am going to practice my french as much as possible while I’m there, so I plan on updating my blog daily (or as much as possible), writing completely en français. Expect lots of photos as well!
When I return on June 12, my blog may also be undergoing a significant overhaul. I was recently hired for a new job within Student Community and Leadership Development as a Media & Communications Ambassador, and so I may need to begin tailoring my posts to more SCLD-related content. However, if I will not be using my blog as a part of my job, I will continue keeping up with it, and running it on my own time.
Regardless however, The New York-er will still be around – and this past year for my blog could not have been as successful without the help of all of my readers and followers. From the bottom of my heart, thank you!
