I am now one of those dangerous things: a Brit, abroad.

This blog is, in part, to provide a satisfactory answer to the ubiquitous question ‘what have you been up to?’ (don’t be ashamed, I ask it too). Instead of repeating myself and getting bored, you can all benefit from the unbridled enthusiasm that I will put into this (ahem).

This is also an aide-mémoire for me; to capture the quotidian peculiarities and linguistic lessons that I have loved, or loathed, along the way. Hopefully they’ll be of interest to you as well.
