The Call of France: Book 1 – Barfield School (9)

Michael decides to leave the brewery and apply for a place on a teacher training course. It now seemed quite natural that what in his final university year he’d contemptuously dismissed as little more than an extension of the cloistered life he’d been leading until then should present itself in a far more redeeming light: […]The Call of France: Book 1 – Barfield School (9) is a post from: FRENGLISH THOUGHTS Related posts: The Call of France: Book 1 – Barfield School (6) The Call of France: ...

The Call of France: Book 1 – Barfield School (8)

Michael dreams of escaping from his present environment to more exotic climes. But now, in retrospect, he couldn’t really say he regretted those two years spent with the brewery. Perhaps it was his positive, philosophically-inclined nature which even convinced him that the experience had done him good: for this raw confrontation with down-to-earth, often unsavoury […]The Call of France: Book 1 – Barfield School (8) is a post from: FRENGLISH THOUGHTS Related posts: The Call of France: Book 1 ...

The Call of France: Book 1- Barfield School (7)

And he was still liable, more than two years later, to mull over in some detail what he’d considered as the straw that broke the camel’s back. The event dated back to the beginning of his second working year and had acted as the irrevocable confirmation that it was as inconceivable for him to adapt […]The Call of France: Book 1- Barfield School (7) is a post from: FRENGLISH THOUGHTS Related posts: The Call of France: Book 1 – Barfield School (8) The Call of France: Book 1 – Barfield School ...

The Call of France: Book 1 – Barfield School (6)

Michael continues to relate his sobering experiences in his first job as a brewery tied-house supervisor. He was soon to admire the speed and accuracy with which the stock clerks and especially the stock takers could count and add up. And it was a source of amazement to him that, in spite of the humdrum, […]The Call of France: Book 1 – Barfield School (6) is a post from: FRENGLISH THOUGHTS Related posts: The Call of France: Book 1- Barfield School (5) The Call of France: Book 1 – Barfield S...

Does Prolonged Expat Living Create Two Different Persons? – 2

The concept you have of your inner self is, of course, determined to a great extent by the environment in which you evolve and your perception of the image others have of you. In this respect language – that verbal garment we are obliged to don in our self-presentation to others – plays, I think, […]Does Prolonged Expat Living Create Two Different Persons? – 2 is a post from: FRENGLISH THOUGHTS Related posts: Does Prolonged Expat Living Create Two Different Persons?

More Thoughts on Prolonged Expat Living

The concept you have of your inner self is, of course, determined to a great extent by the environment in which you evolve and your perception of the image others have of you. In this respect language – that verbal garment we are obliged to don in our self-presentation to others – plays, I think, the most important part. For nothing says more about you than the way you express yourself. But even though my choice of expat living was to a great degree motivated by my perfectionist ideal of speaki...

Some thoughts on Prolonged Expat Living

I frequently recall the words of my old university tutor (himself a former French schoolmaster) who used to say that his ability to speak a foreign language fluently had enabled him to lead two distinct lives. In my own case I would go even further and say that more than 40 years of uninterrupted expat living in France have transformed me into two almost distinct people: for I don’t perceive the French version of Barry Whittingham as being quite the same as the English one – so much so that thi...
