I certainly do not. I speak Spanish fairly well, though it’s been a while since I had a use for it. I understand bits and pieces of Korean, particularly words relating to food. And, obviously, I speak English. However, I have had a desire to learn French for quite a while. I love the way the words sound, there are so many movies I want to watch without having to stare at the subtitles, and lots of fashion blogs happen to be in French…also, it seems the language of fashion is often French – Chanel anyone?
I just received an Amazon shipment containing a complete book of grammar and a Larousse French-English dictionary. I am thinking that because I already know Spanish, a romance language, French should not be so difficult, except for maybe the pronunciation. Does anyone have any great recommendations for websites, books or CDs that are particularly helpful for learning French? Also, if anyone else in Philadelphia knows of any meet-ups for people trying to learn, I would love to join!
