“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” – Dr. Seuss
I started French lessons a couple of weeks ago. This is the third time that I attempt to learn French. This time I am promising myself it will be different. I will apply myself and I will continue learning on my own after the lessons end. That is what I keep telling myself, but I am already having trouble doing the homework. I get distracted. I leave it for tomorrow. I let all else come first.
Having lessons once a week is not enough. I have to do whatever I can on all the other days to keep French in my mind. Of course doing some homework on those days would help, but homework is not fun.
I have been searching for fun games, music and movies. I welcome any tips or ideas on things that I can do to help me learn French.
I can comprehend, read and write better than I can speak. My major problem is the pronunciation. It doesn’t come easy. It is a bit embarrassing and frustrating.
I found a French series on Netflix that I love. I wish they had many more seasons, but there are only two. It is called Call My Agent. The original title in French is Dix Pour Cent.
I was so excited when I discovered that one of my favorite Spanish singers sings in French. His name is Pablo Alboran.
