Parlez-vous francais?

I don't yet either, well not quite. But I'm working on it!

I took about three years of French in high school and wish I would have stuck with it. C'est la vie, I suppose. I realize it's not the most practical language, but I'm throwing caution to the wind on this one! 

I had my first class last night (beginner level 2 at Alliance Francaise San Francisco) and wow, do I have a long way to go. The good news is that I actually understood over half of what my instructor was saying. 

His technique is immersion, so the minute he arrived, there was very little English! But the reality is, even if I attend class, do the homework and practice, can I actually become fluent this late in the game? Is it possible? 

I'll just have to give it my best! À bientôt! 


  1. That's so great!!!! If I end up having some free time, this sounds AMAZING. After all, I had to learn a lot of French in Canada - I'm sure its still in my head somewhere!

  2. Thanks Arti! I think you would really enjoy it, especially since you already have an understanding! Let me know if you end up signing up - we can practice together!
