I’m Learning French!

The Barefoot Blogger is learning French!

Here’s news for all those ‘doubters’ who think the Barefoot Blogger will never learn French.

After two years of living in France and during a short visit to family in the States, I’m taking French lessons seriously. Seriously.

The Rosetta Stone CDs, levels 1-5, are loaded into the computer, and the headphones are out of the storage box. Moreover, every night before I sleep, I play games in French on my iPhone. The phone app’s called “Mindsnaps” and it’s really cool.

“With 1000+ words to master and up to 40 hours of engaging gameplay, shooting the breeze in French will soon be as easy as enjoying the view from atop the Eiffel Tower. As for that difficult French accent, each word in the app features a matching audio clip provided by a native French speaker to help with pronunciation.

2tAs infantile as it looks, this silly game seems to be teaching me something. I’m already to level 10!  Perhaps ‘infantile’ is exactly what I needed to inspire me!

If you recall, my French tutor in Uzes gave me a good start. She’s a speech therapist, so making the right sounds is essential to her. Hopefully, I’ll make some progress if I can just build on what I learned during that brief time.

I’ll keep you posted. Wish me luck!
