[tweetmeme source= »FrenchNad » only_single=false] If you have stayed abroad for an extensive period of time, after the « honey moon phase » and excitement have dissipated, you may have felt:
// le mal du pays // nom masculin: homesickness.
Ressentir le mal du pays (Cela fait trois mois que je suis en Chine, et je commence vraiment à ressentir le mal du pays). // To feel homesick (It has been three months that I have been in China, and I am really starting to feel homesick.)
Surmonter le mal du pays // To overcome homesickness
QUESTION: Can you share a time when you have felt homesick? Where were you and for how long? How did you overcome it?
