The past few weeks I’ve been making an effort in public to use French when the opportunity arises. I know more than I thought I just need to practice. 1 week ago
Found an awesome website – memrise – and it’s been on and off but as of today am at Level 3 of 24. Am quite happy with this site but I think my pronounciation is quite off. :P 2 weeks ago
I’m focusing on listening to podcasts in French, as well as French news, to reduce anxiety over learning, to train my ear for the language, and because I think it will work! No books for now. 4 weeks ago

I just spent 2 weeks travelling with 3 French people (in the USA)and it has motivated me to begin learning French. They kept repeating the same words over and over, and I began to understand what they were saying. I started studying “survival” phrases and the simple stuff such as numbers and days of the week. I live with a French person so I have plenty of opportunity to practice. 2 months ago
I’ve been practicing almost every free moment I get. Most of what I know is pretty basic. I don’t understand most of what’s being said but I can tell someone what color a bear is and what I like to eat.
I don’t know in what situations those would be helpful but I’m OK with that.
The rest of the time I’m listening to a lot of French music or occasionally subtitled French comedies. 2 months ago
