Impressions from my second French class:

- French beginners generally suck at pronunciations, but the two nationalities that do the worst are the Americans and the Chinese.

- I should make peace with the fact that I will never speak French properly because of the 'r' sound. I can halfway manage if a word ends in 'r', but not if an 'r' follows a consonant. I mean, how the hell does one pronounce the 'r' in 'frere'? (I am leaving out the accent.) Seriously.

- Learning a new language is fun but tough, or tough but fun. It is still fun so far.


I would write more but I am tired.
