chasingbunnies wants to stop pretending
So I had my written test and a face-to-face interview with the language school. That was scary at first. I came in to the room and she said, “OK, let’s starting speaking French.” There’s me, saying “Ummm…” But surprisingly, after she slowed way down and kept it to simple questions I was able to string together a few responses and at least could figure out what she was asking me even if I couldn’t think of the words I needed to respond. I can’t believe how exhausting it was after just a few minutes.
As someone who has to talk through things as I am thinking, it is going to be very difficult to have to think of what to say before just blurting something out. It’s like I can’t think if I can’t also talk at the same time. I have taken my English vocabulary for granted and now will be having to build up a whole new one in French.
Class officially starts on 23-Apr. It’s just me and one other person. I’m nervous but excited to get started.
