Last week I sat my first French exam. I really struggled with conjugating some of the verbs (I forgot that connaître “to know” conjugates to nous connaissons “we know”), and it is still hard for me to remember that often something special is required if the next word begins with a vowel. Still, I have learned a lot in the past few months, and I have really enjoyed my classes. The lessons themselves are mostly spoken role-playing, while the homework involves memorisation of vocabulary. I have a great teacher, and I really enjoy the company of the other students. It is a very fun environment, full of laughter whenever I tell them I am wearing a hen “Je porte une poule” instead of pullover “Je porte un pull“, or I try to pronounce the word like happy (“heureux“) that doesn’t contain any phonemes found in the English language.
