Speaking French

 

Given that this week is the International week of the Francophonie, where 274 million French speakers celebrate the French language and Francophone culture, I have decided to revisit a topic I had written again about a year ago about my struggle with the French language.

A little about myself

Hi! My name is Wan and I am a Singaporean who has been calling Paris home for over 3 years now.

 

I started this website because I wanted to share my experiences living in this amazingly beautiful but often misunderstood city. Living in Paris is like living in one gigantic movie set. Surrounded by gorgeous Haussmannian buildings, famous monuments, busy streets and people-of-all-sorts everywhere, Paris is a highly charged city and it never stops moving. Life here is electrifying but it can also be exhausting at times.

 

After discovering more of the city over time, I cannot help but be amazed by its beauty amidst all the diversity between what is perceived as good and bad. It is a city proud of its history and indifferent to those who try to define it.

 

If you are planning to visit the city or already living here, join me and uncover this city from a little Asian perspective.
