Learning a New Language (Francais) Week 2

My learning project has been going well and I have achieved my goal that I made last week, which was being able to speak/write an introduction to my biography. I am now able to introduce myself, my age and the faculty that I am in at the University of Regina. Another blogger recommended that I download the google translator app to help with my learning project and it has been very beneficial to my learning. If anyone would like to start learning a new language or even just a few words or sentences, I highly recommend they do the same. Here is a link to the google translate webpage if you are unable to download the app!

English:

My name is Parker McCormick, I am twenty years old. I am in the faculty of education at the University of Regina

French:

Je m’appelle Parker McCormick, j’ai vingt ans. Je suis à la faculté d’éducation de l’Université de Regina

This is a good start but I know I have much more to learn. Another good source that has helped me with learning French is a website I found which helps you understand how to use punctuation in French, it is similar to English but has a few differences that you need to know in order to speak/write fluently.

For next week, my goal is to be able to add on to my biography by introducing my family members and their age. I will also provide a voice recording of myself introducing what I learned this week, as well as next week’s goal.

Here is my introduction to my biography that I wrote down, the words written in red above are how to pronounce these words as many of the words in French do not sound like the way they are written:

  1. Hey, Parker! This is a good start for sure. French is also on my list since I stopped taking it when I started high school. I would love to revisit it and learn the basics. Have you heard of the app Duolingo? It’s a great language app that makes learning a new language fun and interactive with daily 5-minute lessons. It sends you a reminder each day which is awesome. I’ve been using it to learn Hawaiian over the past few months!

  2. Great start! I can second Zunaira’s recommendation for Duolingo! I am currently using it to regain my French skills. I only have the free version right now, so I can’t access every lesson, but it has been great so far!

  3. Hey Parker,
    It sounds like your learning project is going great! Use caution when using Google Translate because the grammar and punctuation is sometimes incorrect but usually it’s nothing too major. By writing out how to pronounce some of the words above them, it will help you become more fluent in the language so you will do not forget how to pronounce a word. If you need any help or have any questions about Feedly, feel free to ask me.
    Until next time,
    Jayden
