    Learning

    I took a couple of classes in college, did a horrible job b/c I showed up wasted all the time. So now, I just have the Rosetta Stone kind that I got for Christmas. I have to get through all the basics before I find out how much I really know.

    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.

    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. :)

    Learn French With Me

      I moved to Paris a long time ago, and I'm one of those who mastered the French language at a very local level. Now I don't have an accent and talk just like a local. But I know this is not the story everyone who moves here in France; some people fail to master to the...

    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.

    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.

    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
