    At the time, I was working with training

    foreign-exchange students at my school's theatre and arts academy. A pair of French students were cracking jokes on a student and people were gathering to laugh. I saw this but had to listen first. They told the kid "It is clear that you are an idiot and will not make it here...

    R and U have set up forts and are attacking me with fail pronunciations. But the silly little alphabets don't know that I'll conquer them one day!

    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.

    “L’habit ne fait pas le moine” translates

    Chacun voit midi à sa porte Chacun voit midi

    à sa porte is a beautiful expression which, while being somewhat unfortunate, is nevertheless quite true. The literal translation goes : Everyone sees noon at his doorstep. It means that every individual is occupied, first and foremost, with his or her own personal interests...

    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

    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.

    I'm in my second year of French at my high

    school. I'm enjoying it a lot! I'm good with grammar, just not memorizing vocab. Also, my accent is terrible, but not as bad as some kids' accents in my class, so that's good I guess lol
