Re: PM's French Courses Mission

Congratulations on the B2. That is a great accomplishment indeed. You sure got the results fast! You path to that level seems to be unique, being study heavy versus usage heavy, and you've proved quite clearly that it is a valid and viable option. I've always respected your effort and path you've ch...

Re: Best Book Only Read in L2

Le chant de l'océan by Marie-Bernadette Dupuy (French). Few books have transported me to another time and place quiet like this one. An extremely touching and emotional journey of a girl overcoming a series of horrible events in her life, leading her to fight just to survive and hold on to what litt...

Re: PM's French Courses Mission

I hope you get the marks you're estimating, and good luck on the oral tomorrow! As a person that drinks a lot of water, I can completely relate to your story, as a matter of fact something similar happened to me at the dentist today. :) When you get a chance, can you give a bit more detail on the wr...

Re: sctroyenne: French, Irish, Spanish (new beginnings?)

Thank you for sharing your story, and congratulations on working out a solid plan for locating yourself to Montreal. I would for one, and I'm sure I'm not alone, love to hear any other insights or perspectives you have on living in Montreal as an American. How life differs from the US west coast, ob...

Re: Log rlnv 2017 (FR)

It's an accomplishment to even take a test like that! I've been putting it off because I don't want my low confidence to become non existent confidence :lol: It can be humbling to subject oneself to being measured, for sure.

Re: Log rlnv 2017 (FR)

Since my last update I have watched 2 episodes of Angel, 11 episodes of Buffy, 2 episodes of Les petites meurtres, and 7 episodes of Stargate Atlantis. Here are a few observations.

I'll be with MorkTheFiddle at the children's table if anyone is looking for me.
