I really like that german is actually quiet phonetic. I can hear a word and I can write it down, even if I don’t know what it means or I can pronounce something just by looking at it because with french, it’s just SO CONTEXT BASED and I have to wonder “hmmm which of the 5 different homophones for that did you just say?”

I went to a performance with my neighbour (who organised it, and I was helping with the organisation) for 5 year olds and I heard small children singing and talking in french for the first time and it was great. except they all have better vocabularies than me but it’s okay, I won’t stay jealous of five year olds.

I feel like my french hasn’t really improved at all since I got here, but when I actually honestly think about it, it has in leaps and bounds and insane amounts because I spend half my time arguing (read: heated discussions) with people in french, because they love that and even if I don’t know a word, I can explain what I mean in a few sentences and then they tell me the word for it, which is really all you need.

it’s also really helpful that everyone I talk to is a certified teacher because they know how to explain things and are really patient and encourage everyone to learn. thanks guys!
