First week of school

 The first week of school has now passed. After Monday’s first introduction it was time to get busy with the studies on Tuesday. I had an “easy” start of three courses. It was an interesting “chock” to realize that everything in fact is in French, like I’ve earlier selected. The first lecture was about management of operations and information systems. It wasn’t too challenging to follow, though if there weren’t for the well made Power Point presentations I would’ve been at a loss. Hopefully this will become easier as I become more used to (again) studying in a foreign language.

The following course was a French course, aiming to specialize on business French. This is good. In so many ways. Especially when the teacher talks slowly and clearly. I can’t help but notice though that I may not really reach the level of my fellow students…

I need to be the Stefan Holm of the French language.

The subject on the last lecture wasn’t as familiar for me as on the first one (this was about corporate social responsibility and ethics) but at least I didn’t fall asleep like a couple of the French students. I seem to be the only one of the foreign students on my course (same as on the first course also) as we aren’t that many and we’ve been spread out in different groups.

It was a good thing that Wednesday was free so that I could recuperate and concentrate a bit more on sports. I needed to otherwise to relax also, so my first party I attended on Thursday (after the five hours long French lecture!). At first the ESN Nice organized a welcome for us at the Valrose Grand Chateau where we received more info of the Erasmus and ESN, met other exchange students and got to eat some food.

I made a new friend. :)

The first week was quite easy as even Friday was free. We had agreed on meeting just with the EDHEC people and our French buddies. The meet would happen in Apotheka in the evening, but I went first out with my Kenyan neighbor and her friend. As we later tried to come in to the Apotheka, however, we weren’t let in by the not-so-friendly-nor-cooperative doorman. Later I found on Facebook that many of us had had the same unfortunate encounter with Mr. Partypooper. We went to another pub, which was a real nice joint with pretty OK live music.

When we were on our way home happened we to meet again with our EDHEC-gang as they had left Apotheka and were on their way to dance to another place. I had unfortunately left my dancing shoes home so it was time to call it a night.

On Friday I finally acquired my EDHEC sports pass which grants me entry for example to the school gym, oh the joy of not being forced to solely the ferocious waves in the Jean Bouin swimming hall day after day! I tested the gym immediately on Friday and decided that the machines are in good shape and there is plenty of space in the gym, but the motion cycle and air conditioning were unfortunately absent. Saturday was owned to sports with a roughly 3.5 hour’s session including riding a bike, cross trainer and swimming.



Sunday was a field trip day with destination Cannes, which deserves a post of its own.
