I’m learning French!

I’m learning a new language!

Well, actually I’m trying to learn French, a language that I’m sure I don’t need to learn because I don’t think my life will ever take me to France or any African country where I’d have to use it. But well, I LOVE travelling and exploring different cultures so you never know. Maybe one day God would have mercy on me and take me to all those places that I really really really want to go.

I wish.

Well, For today, I learnt eleven phrases.

  1. Bonjour— Hello!
  2. Mon prenom est Fiya— My name is Fiya
  3. Comment allez-vous?— How are you?
  4. Je suis tres bien— I’m fine
  5. Je t’aime— I love you
  6. Mademoiselle— Miss!
  7. Comment s’appelle ton pere?— What is your father’s name?
  8. Mon pere s’appelle S.S.M— My father’s name is S.S.M
  9. Je suis perdu— I am lost
  10. Aidez-moi!— help me!
  11. Au Revoir!— Goodbye!

I’m so excited to learn more. When I learn something it makes me feel so useful and valuable. It makes me feel that I’m not totally wasting my life doing nothing and that I’m turning myself into a prized possession. I love learning and expanding my knowledge. For me, learning is a necessary exercise for my brain and I want my brain to be in action 24/7.

I really want to share a power boosting quote with you guys, I’m not really sure who said it but the internet says Mahatma Gandhi said it so I’m giving credits to him.

“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.”
-Mahatma Gandhi.

Au Revoir!

  1. C’est fantastique, ça! So…this is your *fourth* language? I think that you are *incroyable*! Learning French is only my second language and I waited a long time time to start. French is a beautiful language 🙂 on my site I have several links that I find useful in my learning, so if you’re interested, stop by and try some of them out… et bon courage!

    • Hey! Yes it will be my fourth one:) thank you and I completely agree, Its a very very sweet language.I just visited your blog but I cannot find the links, would you be kind enough to let me know the category in which they are posted so it would be easier for me to find them and check them out, please if you don’t mind?

      • Bonjour Fiya! My faves are all in the sidebar under “Utile pour apprendre le français.” I think you might really like the “French in Action” videos 🙂 If you are using a tablet, they might be at the bottom rather than on the side. Let me know if you still don’t see them. In the meantime, I think I’ll try making a “Page” with all those links.

  2. I’m a ling-o-holic and French was my 3rd. I’m now learning my 5th, German. Aside from my interest in foreign languages, I find it best to learn even the mere basics because not only do you learn how to speak the language but you learn the culture as well.

    The manner of speaking is rarely the same. Take advantage of this time to learn it and hopefully one day you can use it whether or not in a francophone country. I did that while I was still working as a waitress and I had a great feeling at the end.

    If ever you want to try out your French, come to Switzerland. The country has 4 national languages: German, French, Italian, and Romansch. Hit me up if ever you do 🙂

  3. I highly recommend the Rocket Language online series of language courses. Affordable, interactive, useful, and not in ridiculous phrases and accents that real people never say or speak! I’ve read reviews that compared them to the Rosetta Stone courses, but without the price tag. I crash coursed with them to learn German and within a couple of months had learnt enough to get married in my new language and also work in the country. By the end of my stay I was getting close to fluent, which says a lot for immersion, but the foundations were lain by the course. I still refer to them and use them now to keep my language in shape, and will soon embark on the advanced course to step up to the next level. I can’t recommend them enough. Thanks for liking my post too.

  4. I’d like to thank you for the efforts you have put in penning this blog.
    I’m hoping to check out the same high-grade blog posts by you later on as well.
    In truth, your creative writing abilities has inspired me
    to get my own website now 😉
