How I raised a French child (as an American)

Imagine your own child is more French than you are.

Well that’s a reality for Catherine, an American in Carcassonne, who’s today’s guest on The Earful Tower podcast.

Catherine, who writes the Taste of France blog, talks about bringing up a bilingual child, the differences between French and American schooling, and the difficulties of parenting between two cultures.

Listen to the episode below.

  1. I follow both of your blogs and listen to the Earful tower podcast – so it was a nice surprise to see the two blended. Nice job! We were in Carcassonne last year and shared many of your thoughts – we enjoyed this area and hope to return (soooooon).

      1. Same here. I’d seen it from the highway several years ago on our way to Spain – but we didn’t stop. So in 2017 – I was determined to visit – this time we flew into Barcelona instead of Paris, trained to Collioure (a must see if you haven’t and have time) – then rented a car to drive to Charante Maritime and finally on the way we stopped in Carcassone for 2 days. I loved the old city and soon fell in love with the new city. This part of France is very different from the area near La Rochelle that we normally visit – it did not disapoint – it was a very pleasant and friendly city. It was amazing to walk along the canal du midi – the history of its construction – so amazing.

  2. No doubt – it’s amazing. I also enjoyed your article on La Rochelle – this is where my Mother-in-Law lives and the area I am most familiar with. COULD that city be any more perfect? Thank you again for your fantastique podcast! So impressed that you are living your dreams.

    1. Thanks Suz, and thanks a lot for listening. La Rochelle is a treat – your mother-in-law is lucky to live there!
