There are many reasons. Here are a few:
It means that you will be able to be understood in France.
It opens up a whole new culture to you - films, books, history, etc.
It is a wonderful intellectual exercise for its own sake. It sharpens the brain.
If you fall in love with a French person , you will be able to talk with them. It happens!
My message this week is this:
Please practise the French that you learn in our lessons. If you do so, it will get easier and easier and you will be proud of your accomplishment.
So, this week, please rehearse numbers one to twelve so that you can tell the time in French.
Un, deux, trois, quatre, cinq, six, sept, huit, neuf, dix, onze, douze.
