French, Week 9

slipped a day.
but did the rest.

the podcast was amazing.
i did not understand anything.
will keep at it :)

French, Week 8

French, seems to be the only thing that I do regularly.
Probably because it takes me only 45 minutes to an hour daily.
(And that is because I am dumb and slow and deliberate. I’m sure other folks must be doing this is 10-20 minutes)

While I thought I was making progress, I had a funny sort of realisation when a friend asked me if I could speak and carry on a basic conversation in French.
And I realised, I couldn’t. I could not even understand words (or a sense of what they might convey outside of the little, I was learning daily.)

So I think I will try listening to podcasts in French, in order to get a sense of the rhythm and flow of the language.
Will write back in a couple of months to record, if there has been improvement.
