Get to it girl!!!! haha

Yes ma'am! rofl

haha im so happy i have a new french partner xd cause everyone takes spanish emotion_eyebrow lol

I know!
I probably should have taken Spanish because it is the second common language where I live and would help with jobs... But I just couldn't for some reason. Also French is such a beautiful language. Not that Spanish isn't but French just seems more mystical to me >0<

I totally agree, spanish is everywhere!! damn america Y U SO CLOSE TO MEXICO?! lol

Bahaha Oh well. It's good to know the basics of the major languages anyways... Though I don't know if my memory can handle it all >o<
Oh I loved French! I took latin at the same time so it really helped (4 years of latin two years of french!) I would definitely say flash cards-flashcards,flashcards,flashcards. <---seriously-FLASH.FREAKING.CARDS.

Anyway, I also find it easier to learn if you speak it with people. At my job I get a lot of canadians in the summer, so I practice there but I also practice with some other students in my class. You'll be surprised at how much you really know!

I love French! J'adore Francias! I'm practically fluent from talking it since freshie year. I'm already bilingual but I fell head over heels in love with french! I always wanted to go to French speaking countries and test my skills.

I'm in my fifth year of French classes, and It's been easy for me the entire way through. However, my teacher is placing more emphasis on immersion and speaking French throughout the whole class, so I'm starting to struggle. Frickin' speech impediment.

Regardless, my favorite study method is to find an anime and watch it in French. Really helps understand it being spoken, and with subtitles it helps develop speed-reading.

That's a common problem. The French speak very fast, and French is full of homonyms and many sounds are dropped when spoken.

I took french since I was 5. So...

It's an easy language if you know the vocab. The grammar can get tricky, but I wouldn't really worry about it.

Good luck!

It's fine but I think I might do Spanish instead.
