That's a matter of perspective, really. I definitely (quietly?/loudly?/annoyingly?) disagree! (don't mind me, i'm tiptoeing off into the sunset, nothing to see here).... Oh and nice work everyone with the writing! It'd do me some good to do something like this, but hey, too busy (collecting resources <-- serious stuff! procrastinating maybe?)
Okay, why do I disagree? I want to explain, but I can't see how I can avoid coming off as haughty... well, here goes... If when you learn French you associate each phoneme/sound with the letters/groups of letters that are represented by those phonemes, then nothing should be overly surprising. English is another story! Anyway, I guess we all learn differently and I'm just going to quit now before I dig/sink any deeper. Feel free to ban me from the forum due to my overbearing arrogance with regards to absolute mastery of the French language. Hence, why writing challenges are well below me. I make Victor Hugo look like he was in kindergarten when he wrote anything well-known. Is this a battle? A rap battle, Aiight.. sup foolz... walk away Peter Mollenburg, walk away!!!
