Learning French....

Bon jour! I started my French lessons last week! French is a very difficult language to learn and to speak! I am taking classes at Berlitz (which happens to be located on my street) and so far so good. I am taking private lessons so I am not in a class with anyone else. I am so self-conscience about speaking the language that I knew I would not do well in front of others. I sound ridiculous!

When I arrived last week, the instructor jumped right in and started speaking French immediately. I was a little lost (obviously) but managed to pick up on a few words since I took a few lessons before I left Memphis (thanks Katie!!!).

I hope to get in a couple of lessons this week before heading to Budapest next Monday. Wish me luck!

Here are a few of phrases....in case you want to learn a little with me:

Bon jour = Hello
Comment allez-vous? = How are you?
Au revoir = Bye
Merci = Thank you
Good evening = Bonsoir


  1. Since I speak Spanish when I was in Canada I could not get down the French way of pronouncing things. It was VERY comical. Good luck with your lessons! It's so much fun to know another language.
