About this submission

L’Apprenante is an American college student in the process of “finding herself abroad” in Paris and taking French classes to immerse herself in the culture. In one class, she struggles to recount her weekend where she goes to a Parisian party and meets La Femme; a girl she is immediately drawn to. As she navigates the discomfort of learning a new language, she also navigates the discomfort of discovering her queerness. Will she ever be able to get out of her head, commit to the accent, and make a move? Impossible n’est pas français.
