Speaking Franglish

September 21, 2008 4 comments , ,

This blog is a true cross-cultural adventure, written by two people from different countries who have never met. Sarah lives in Seattle, USA and Valentina is Italian but lives in Marseille, France.

In Franglish, Sarah and Valentina take turns to publish a letter to the other one about what’s going on in their lives. The project started in April 2008 and they will exchange letters via their blog for one year.

  • What a wonderful idea – Blogs of the world! As an expat who is traveling the globe constantly thisi s an excellent resource and entertaining way to pass an afternoon. Alas, I’ve an article deadline so should finish the coffee & browse and get back to work. But wanted to send a note to say Good Idea and Keep up the Good Work!
