The organisation i am working in encourages the staff to acquire a second language. So I signed up for a french beginner class, although if you ask me I would choose another language over french (would love to do immersion programme for arabic). Otherwise it would be useful to learn french as its being spoken a lot in europe and half the muslim world.
So it was the first class today..we kind of asked to show off what are the french words we already know. The funniest was someone answered “como talibu”.. ..who would have thought its actually comment allez-vous.. ohhh
So all of us started from ground zero. That makes it real fun..
You really need to twist and roll your tongue cos its not as straight forward like any other languages.
I am planning to use the opportunity of not travelling to start studying again. And so many study programmes being offered online.
Once the french class is over let’s move on to the next big thing.
But for now lets just acquérir le français and enjoy..
