    I would love to speak french better.

    I really want my kids to be bilingual in addition to myself. Also it's the language of love and fashion. I'm interested in both. I just want someone who can teach me. I would love a house in France one day too

    Only a Little

    I learnt French for three months at a crash course. i still love that language and hope to read and understand it more in the future. most words are like english so i guess and understand, but it's not the same as knowing the language.

    Values

    Should values be taught or caught?  Both are improtant.  In teaching, we tell them about what a value eg honesty is and show them how being honest is desirable.  But it is also necessary that our children be given the opportunities to *catch* it through personal...

    I'm only one week into learning French using

    the Duolingo app — not exactly very in depth learning. I will use it alongside better methods if I decide to stick with it. Once I'm comfortable with basic conversational French, it would be cool to talk in French with a native speaker.
