Taking baby steps by working with an app on my phone. First goal is to play with it every day. 2 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. 3 weeks 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. 3 weeks ago
I have taken three years of French, but have seldom devoted time to learning the ways of the language. I wish to enhance my current state, as it is most definitely not fluent, and speak french. 4 weeks ago
So, I went to a French meet-up at a coffee shop in Portland this week knowing I am unable to speak the language practically at all, and the people there were so nice and accepting that they allowed me to listen and soak it all in. A man there told me about iTele.fr direct, so I have been watching streaming news in French to further accustom my ears to the sound of French being spoken. It is good timing because News in Slow French reduced its free content a couple of weeks ago. Yay! Later that night I dreamt I was wearing lots of white T-shirts, which I think relates to something I have been reading called The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin, where the author realizes she prefers white t-shirts so allows herself to buy a bunch at once. Regardless of my low skill-set in French, I am trying anyway, and it was gratifying to realize that no one there seemed to mind. Je suis debutante! 2 months ago
I’ve been learning on and off for 8 years, barely anything has stuck but the Rosetta Stone program has been the most helpful as I am a visual learner. 3 months ago
I was just accepted to a university in Paris – my dream university. They have English and French courses and I am determined to use the city to my advantage so I can check off this goal with the knowledge that my French fluency is at local level.
Bonne chance tout le monde! 3 months ago
