For my learning project, I will be learning the basics of french with my end goal of being able to speak/write a detailed biography about myself as well as hold a conversation with another person in this language. I have not been taught French since elementary school and believe that if I am able to learn this language it will be a valuable asset for my future as an educator as well as being able to travel and communicate in another language.
I have found several resources so far that will help me along the way with learning this new language. My girlfriend is bilingual as well and speaks both English and French so I am lucky enough to have her as a mentor for me.
My goal for next week is to be able to introduce my name, my faculty and my age fluently, which is much harder than it seems. By the end of the semester, my goal is that I will be able to speak/write a biography about myself fluently in great detail and be able to hold a conversation in french with another person. I am very excited to see my progress over the next few months and hope my interest in this language continues to increase so much that I will continue to learn it and become bilingual myself.
