Hi! My name is Kelly!
And I am proud to say that I am a francophone (french speaker).
Hold on! I'm no expert, but I did go from never understanding a lick of french to being able to hold full conversations in french (with native french speakers)!
My ultimate goal over these past years was to hold a conversation in french with a native french speaker -- and not have them die of boredom.
So I've created this blog as a diary to help anyone who is experiencing the same problems I had with trying to learn to speak french.
I know a lot of people struggle to learn another language, especially if the language is not their native tongue.
In fact, it took over 8 years of trial and error for me to finally find the greatest and most effective methods to pick up the french language. I've tried a ton of programs, books, audiobooks, and french courses over just under a decade. And I've spent quite a bit of money to achieve my goal.
Whew! But I've finally made it!
And to spare you all the from wasting your time (along with all the madness along the way), I've rated all the techniques, programs, and products for you -- so you can get an inside scoop before you make the crucial decision (da da dum!)
- Price: Important because everything comes directly from my pocketbook.
- Quality: I'm a quantity over quantity person.
- Ease of Use / Portability: Is the software, book, program easy to use?
- Mac compatibility: I own a Mac, so this is crucial for me.
- Customer Support: I can get lost with the learning part, so it would be nice to have.
I'm keeping track of all my efforts for your convenience.
Hopefully, through my trek, I can entertain you along the way! Perhaps you can laugh at my mistakes and blunders and learn from them, too!
I hope you can learn something from me here and more importantly gain the same results that I have.
À tout à l'heure!
