I am retired from fundraising from the arts. I worked for the Nashville Symphony until six years ago.. I studied French for eight years and studied at the Universite des Etudients Etranges in Aix en Provence way back in the 1960's. We have traveled to France several times over the years and I have longed to stay long enough to become more fluent. I understand that Montpellier is a center for studying the language.
