My expectations of French was that I wasn't going to be able to understand the teacher and that she was going to go ahead and I was going to be stuck behind not understanding anything.
I thought I would be able to say the words in class but as soon as I got home I would forget them. I thought French was going to be a subject I wouldn't like and a subject that I wouldn't be able to do.
After 6 months of speaking the French language I'm now seeing the easy side to it and I really like learning new words. Some words are really fun to say and some words even look like they sound. I think it's really fun to be able to guess what the teacher is saying and it's really cool that you can talk to your friends in French aswell.
Favourite Things So Far
My favourite things so far are learning about the traditions of the country. I like learning what words directly mean and not just how they're used in general. I like doing fun things with the language like singing and playing games. I think it's cool that you can understand the teacher and being able to understand things in French when I'm reading.
Although a lot of things in languages are easy/fun there are hard things aswell. Some hard things are: Having to remember what gender every word is. Its hard to speak with the French accent and it's sometimes really hard to remeber the spellings.
