I fell in love with the French language when I studied it in college. I learned quite a bit in my two years of Fre 111 and 112, but when you are forced to learn it in a rigid strict structure...it never seems to be as enjoyable. I loved learning the language but I hated the way I was being taught!
So, it is my goal to become fluent in French this year! No more wedding to plan or Accreditation to go through at work...my schedule is open! I have bought a computer program with awesome interactive games and vocabulary. I am all setup for success, now all I need to do is learn it :)
My first day of trying it was yesterday afternoon...my scores were very good for not using what I know for two years. I was able to recall all the colors, numbers, food, and quite a bit of the everyday vocabulary. Jonathan has even agreed to learn it with me, so we will see how we progress.
It is just such a beautiful language and culture full of rolling r's and fabulous coffee and crumpets. My hopes are that Jonathan and I will be traveling to Paris either this year or next year and I will be able to use my new language skills to order us dinner and dessert!
So, I shall keep you updated on my progress!
