French lessons to be continued?

April 26, 2010 at 12:55 pm | Posted in 心情筆記/Journal, 法語練習簿/French Corner | 2 Comments

Thinking of going back to French lessons again on Monday / Wednesday evenings. I skipped last session because I felt overloaded and also due to budget cuts. However, language needs to be be used, or it gets rusty. I really am considering signing up for French again. Perhaps I’ll stop by the school office this evening to enroll. Classes will run from May 3 ~ June 28.


Exam Season

It’s been a while since I finished school, but yes I do have an exam season. My French lessons are coming to an end, and both classes have an exam before I am considered finish and can continue my lessons.

I’m becoming more and more nervous about it, but my teacher is so sweet and even offered to give me a review lesson to help me prepare. So touched!

Merci beaucoup, P. Je vais passer l’examen!

來練練法文–Ma Cliente

La semaine dernière, j’ai eu une cliente qui parle français. Elle vient de Québec. Elle étudie chinois à Taiwan. Elle parle un peu chinois et un peu l’anglais. Mais je parle chinois et l’anglais mais je parle un peu français. C’était un dialogue très intéressant. Mais nous nous sommes comprises.

Quand je lui parlais français, elle a souri. Elle a dit que ça fait 5 ans qu’elle ne parlait pas français parce qu’elle étudie chinois à Taiwan.

Elle va revenir au bureau le lundi prochain. Je vais essayer de l’aider.



我的法語練習簿/My French Corner

I’ve decided to start a new category in my blog.

I’ve always encouranged my students to keep an English journal to give them a chance to do free writing in English.

My own French teacher suggests we take the time to write “un petit petit text” in French. I suppose it would be a similar idea to what I encourage my students to do in English.

Anyway, why not keep it here with the rest of my blog. I figure, it can also be a place whether I try to gather my understanding of French together. Like a notebook or work-in-progress. So here goes my first try. Feel free to correct me. I’m sure I’ll learn in the process.

Je vous présente mon professeur. Il est français. Il s’appelle Thierry. Il mesure 1 mètre 80. Il enseigne le français à Taipei. Il est brun avec les yeux marron.

Il n’aime pas les chats mais il a trois chats dans sa maison. Je pense que c’est bizarre et intéressante.

Thierry habite à Taipei, mais il n’aime pas de trafic à Taipei.
