I am taking part time french lessons at work. I remember learning french in grades 4-8, and it was a helluva lot easier than it is now. I think my brain is fighting to not accept it.
We have a two hour session mardi and vendredi morns. I really appreciate people who know more than one language. It is very difficult to listen to people speakin' french...especially on energie 104.1. While I require french to be promoted at work, living in Ottawa requires french (and working in Quebec!). I have re-activated some french channels on my t.v. which were previously locked out. (that reminded me of Flanders saying "199 channels all locked out" or something to the like!!)
So I am trying. I think you really have to be taking a full time french class in order to learn, but hey...it is during work hours, and I still getting paid!
If anyone knows of some good resources to learn french, let me know...
