Anonymous asked: Hi! Do you have an instagram account? xo
Yes I do, it’s @rmiwilson but all the Paris photos will be quite a while back now!
cochoncochon asked: Did you enroll yourself or through an exchange program? Were your courses in french or english? And (last one) if in french what did you think of the language barrier?
I went through an Erasmus programme, my courses were all in French and the language barrier wasn’t too bad, you just have to ask the other students to clarify if you think you’ve missed something and obviously it depends on your level of French when you go. You can read more about the details of my exchange here xx
I miss this tumblr because it reminds me of Paris but also because of all the other awesome blogs I follow, so I’m gonna follow everyone with my cityspire handle, so we can all bake a cake made of happiness and rainbows
Anonymous asked: How did you go about paying for your accommodation in advance? Did you book it through an agency? x
I was at the Foyer International des Etudiantes and they just let me pay all my months in a lump sum at the beginning of the year x
Anonymous asked: Does the Sorbonne allow you to choose courses other than foreign languages?
I was at Sorbonne Nouvelle (Paris III) and I didn’t have to do any foreign languages if I didn’t opt for it! I did mostly literature courses and a French language course. There’s loads of other stuff to choose from, I’d recommend having a look at their website and what they have to offer. x
Anonymous asked: What courses did you take at the Sorbonne nouvelle?
Firstly I was at Sorbonne Nouvelle (Paris III) - there are two others, Paris-Sorbonne (IV) and Sorbonne-Panthéon (Paris I), so they obviously vary from university to university.
I took all literature courses, some where purely French literature, others were ‘littérature générale et comparée’ (comparative literature) - the full list is here
Hope that helps! x
