If you’ve read my blog a while, you know I have a terrible time with the French language. I have a lot going against me – working from my home 10 hours a day never using my French; having a hearing disorder that makes comprehension virtually impossible; having no affordable French classes nearby; and trying to learn a language at age 53 when my memory is half what it used to be. I’ve given up ever really speaking it proficiently and have set my goals to a basic conversational level with the ability to understand at least generally what is being said 50% of the time. Most of the time I feel quite depressed about the situation and very frustrated, so when this video was released and circulated around the France expat community, I laughed until I cried. It was comic relief for me to see that others have some of the same problems and deal with it in some of the same ways. If you’ve ever struggled with learning a foreign language, you’ll love this video.
