If you have lived in France for over half of your life, are you finally French? Is it smug to want to say so? (How to say “smug” in French?) My name is Kristi and it is questions like this that keep me writing to you, dear Francophile, for twenty years now, via my blog French Word-A-Day: http://french-word-a-day.com

Recently awarded a gold medal—La Médaille des Valeurs Francophones—from the French government for my continuous efforts in sharing the French language and culture. This gift was a second wind, and I wake up each day thinking about all the French words and stories I have yet to share with you, via the World Wide Web and here, in my books.

Please join me for some colorful weekly updates on life here in France:

www.french-word-a-day.com

Or send an email to:

Kristin.espinasse@gmail.com

...and request the free weekly roundup of useful French words and beautiful photos from the seaside here near Cassis.
