The Blank Stare
The Blank Stare seems to be a very common face here in Sherbrooke, at least for me and anyone near me. It's usually the expression I wear to class every day, as I sit at my desk, trying to figure out what the teacher is saying. A number of the other students also seem to like the expression. It's also a common face for any native French speaker whom I try to converse with. For example, when say something simply like, "I would like a cup to buy a cup of coffee." This is the face I am met with. I'm hoping it will eventually change, but for now, it's life.
