It’s been about a year since I said I was going to learn French, largely inspired by this post on the joys of learning a language. I spent that year pecking away at it. I’m not fluent, but I’m a year better. Reading is coming much easier than speaking.
In September I’m going to ratchet it up a bit and enroll in some French classes so I can practice speaking more.
If you’ve ever wanted to learn a foreign language, I’d invite you to jump in with me. There are four months left in the year. I’m going to spend them studying.
I’ve got Spanish behind me. I think I’ll be pretty confident with French in another year. Not sure what’ll come next…
I’m only able to free up 15-30 minutes a day to study, and it’s been enough to make good progress, so it doesn’t necessarily take lots of time.
If you’re in, let me know what language you’re going to tackle. And of course, for you pros, study tips are welcome.
