French Language Residents

2023-2024 Academic Year: Marie Blanquinque

Tell us when and how you started studying foreign languages and what you like about learning languages.

My passion for foreign languages dates back to when I was about ten years old. At that time, I discovered English at school, and I literally fell in love with this language and since then I have been practicing a lot. Moreover, I also studied Spanish in high school. And I was so eager to become fluent in both languages that I decided to pursue a bachelor’s degree in English and Spanish. Learning foreign languages is paramount for it has enabled me to communicate with so many people from all over the world. Furthermore, being able to connect with others and discover new cultures is what I find amazing.

Tell us about a favorite activity that you pursue when you have free time.

One of my favorite outdoor activities is running. Indeed, I have always been passionate about running since my teenage years and what I love most about it is the feeling you get once your training is over and the fact you know that you have surpassed yourself. Running also has helped me develop many qualities such as discipline and dedication.

Tell us what you studied at the university and what you might like to do one day.

I am currently doing a Master’s degree in research in English studies at la Sorbonne in Paris and I am specialized in U.S. history. I would like to pursue my studies with a PhD in American studies. In the future, I am planning on becoming a researcher and lecturer in American history for I would love to share my passion for history.
