Learning French: the great teacher

The more I learn the more I realize how much I don’t know

I can converse in French for an hour and a half

Learning new words in French makes me feel like I’m using my brain

I am learning above all patience. This language may take me another 10 years but it will be worth it. I love knowing how to understand and communicate in two languages.

I want to be a life-long learner. That means finding things that will take a lifetime to learn. French has so many layers. Each one is meaningful because I’m granted access to another level of understanding.

I will never give up until I can be the teacher!

  1. How wonderful to learn a whole new language, especially when you are not a child (my kind way of saying in ‘later years’!). I have given up trying to learn another one now I’m old. My memory is so bad, I try and learn ten new foreign words a day, then I’ve forgotten them by the next day! I learnt French at school and college to A level standard, so when I go to France now, I’m using my French that I learnt a very long time ago, which is slowly deteriorating, but I never learn anything new in French….. I know some basic greek words and can read menus, signs etc, but in no way could I have a sensible conversation!

    • It’s something that has have a slow and steady approach. I’m enjoying the learning and seeing how I can pick up threads from one lesson to the next. (I am in two classes a week).
