"Miss, I'm no bein' cheeky or anythin'," fourth-year Shane told his teacher, "but you know how you're always pure goin' on and on about France - the language an' the food an' a' that. If it's that good, how do you no just go and live there?"

"Because it isn't always easy just to change jobs and countries. I would like to retire there though."
