I take French as an extra subject both this and the next semester, so far so good. I’ve been reading a lot of language blogs lately, and when I try using their methods during my spare time, I find that I learn much faster than the rest of the class. I guess it helps that I studied Latin last year as well.
I do struggle a lot with speaking right, as French sounds so different than the other languages I currently know. But hey, with practice it can only get better, right? :)
