I started an adult education class last night--French for travelers.
I was the only one who actually did not have definitive travel plans, but one can dream.
A fellow student recommended some phone apps. One was duo lingo. It has any number of languages if you are so inclined. I did the most basic lesson and I was informed, with a bit of computer fanfare, that I am now 1% proficient in French.
But, I have to start somewhere and I can say, "Je parle un peu francais." Unfortunately, I do not know how to put the little beard thingie under the c.
I have homework to do.
I think I will also assign myself to re-read Me Talk Pretty One Day.
