French: First and Last Lesson
October 2, 2008 § 1 Comment
French is one of the most beautiful yet difficult languages I have encountered. It didn’t help that I had a little bit of a Spanish background and kept on confusing the pronunciation and spelling of things. I was only able to study French in school for less than 6 months. =( My trip in Paris wasn’t long enough to significantly improve my speaking skills but I definitely developed a new, more fervent appreciation of the language and the culture. CHOCOLATE CROISSANTS!!! I hope to continue learning French throughout my life until I can express my thoughts as poetically as the natives.
As you can see, I am not qualified to teach French. Therefore, I’ve gathered up some resources for you to learn from, if you so choose. I have only glanced at some of these pages but from what I have seen so far, most of them have audio files for you to learn from. Take a look and go learn! I will be publishing atrociously written blogs in French but I will not be posting any more learning material.
