Are there any beginners in this group?

Today I watched Rust and Bone https://www.imdb.com/title/tt2053425/ and understood like maybe 5% of the dialogue

I might start French lessons in April, I hope to get fluent-ish by June.

Salut everyone,

I'm just dropping in to say that I recently learned that a lot of Canadian television series from the 80s and 90s have been released by their distributors on Youtube, including a lot of French content. Some were originally recorded in French and some are dubbed. I'm having fun watching some nostalgic favourites like Fais-moi peur! (Are You Afraid of the Dark?) and Direction Sud (Due South) that I originally watched in English years ago.

I'm interested in history, cinema, culture, sexuality, gender, identity, politics... most things! I don't really want to read anything too right wing or about sport.

My friends in France were devastated by the Notre Dame fire.

This is one 3 D version of Notre Dame before the fire but I hear the one done by a Vassar College professor is spectacular.

This is a partial clip of the Vassar 3 D scan:

If someone can find better 3D by all means post it.

My favorite French chapel Chapelle Notre-Dame-du-Haut de Ronchamp is very different. I have been in it and love it:

There are 4 official sites where you can donate money to help rebuild Notre-Dame, if you're interested.

It's probably about time I joined this group! I've studied French on and off for... my whole life? :lol: I'm currently doing the 365 Day Challenge, and haven't missed a day yet, which is probably the most consistency I have ever had in language learning. Hooray!

My level is hard to pinpoint. I can read YA novels, news articles, and other simple texts. I can understand Peppa Pig. Any audio more complicated than that, I have trouble following, which is one of the main things I'm working on right now. If I try to have a conversation, I freeze up. :shock: But, since I'm seeing such good progress in my reading, and some in my listening as well, I'm hoping this will gradually translate into improvements in my active skills.

Currently my main activities are reading and watching movies/TV, but I also do L-R, Duolingo, Memrise, and grammar exercises.

My log is here. I look forward to learning with you all! :D

Je souhaite que cela était disponible lorsque j'étais au lycée.
