    It's quite hard. Thank god I have a good memory

    and I'm doing really good according to my teacher. But reading is a bit hard. Some words are spelt differently and have different meanings but are pronounced the same. Like été, était, and étaient

    Took a French class in high school.

    My background in Spanish helped a lot! I plan on taking more courses in college.

    French 1

    I am currently a French 1 student, and I love it. I love the language and I plan to continue learning it. Language is my first love, and being a writer it would be interesting to write in another language.

    Why Learn French?

    simple: french women are absurdly beautiful. don't get me wrong, I am still very attracted to american women. However, french women are just so elegant, their clothing is just so simple and has remained the same for decades. they always wear makeup but you can never...

    Un Si Long Voyage!

    I took the french class in my first year. I found the text book unnecessarily complicated and dropped the next year. And decided ill learn myself. I bought a huge dictionary and got a pronunciation app. Still working. :)

    I Am Learning French Since a Few Decades....

    ... and it's not that I want to discourage anyone from learning it, but it's a neverending quest. Damned be all those living and evolutive languages ! :) My only consolation is that the same seems to be true with English hehehe... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki...

    I'm taking my 1st year of french.

    Got to say, it's a very romantic language. I hate that I still have to present after telling my teacher that have anxiety. It's very fun to be in the class.

    It's more of a hobby.

    I'd call it a passion but I'm not THAT serious about the language. Although it is pretty fun if I may say so myself.
