French, Week 5

Similar sounding words are an absolute murder on the ears.
I can’t figure out moo and moue, kip and keep, and lots of bonne and bun.
Keeping at it though. Keeping at it. :)

French, Week 3

It’s going swimmingly well so far.
Still in the phase where there is an avalanche of stuff coming at me.
But a few tiny things, I know now.
Which is how I know I am making progress.

P.S. Crazy idea that just struck me, would to start writing these updates in french as soon as I am able!

French, Week 2

This was a week of learning to work at it.
Lots of fun.
Managed to keep up with daily lessons in the Fluent Forever app. Am having trouble with the guttural ʁ sound.
Hopefully will get better at it with practice.

French, Week 1

Finished reading the fluent forever book.
Tried creating flash cards when i got a mail telling about the just launched app.
Have been using it to start with French.

It truly is a timesaver.

I know because I have been creating flash cards for a year now and it takes a significant amount of time.
It is really cool to have all my resources in one place.

Have stuck to the plan diligently.

Right now the focus is on wathching short videos and building up flash cards for vocabulary and for words that sound similar.

More next week ...
