Learn French

We spent some time with a new friend, a wise woman in a retirement home. For some reason the conversation quickly turned to Paris. She said it was disrespectful for us to visit Paris, and not know the language. We could redirect that towards people we meet on the streets of Chicago, or we could focus and Learn French.

Although we subscribe to TV5Monde, watch the Tour de France over the summer, Tweet articles of interest, love French history and cinema – another year has passed where we have not progressed beyond the basic phases of survival. We are exploring French language Meet Ups, perhaps “a little, too late.”

I don’t speak the language, will that be an issue?
