Like a lot of British people, I studied French at school for what felt like years and years.
But again, like a lot of people, I stopped learning French (or any foreign language) at the age of sixteen and never took it up again.
For a few years, I could get by in the language, based on youthful enthusiasm and on what I remembered from school. I even, briefly, had a French girlfried, who didn’t speak English. We got on just fine.
But, as I got older, what I thought I knew just faded away.
That said, I now live in Italy, and have more or less mastered Italian, which is very similar to French, in many respects.
So similar, in fact, it seems a shame not to go back and have another go, especially now there are so many great resources on the internet.
So as I try again wth the language, I’ll post links to useful stuff I find out there.
Perhaps there’ll also be the occasional article with helpful tips…
