I’ve decided it is grand temps that I get organized and focused on learning languages again. I feel as though I’ve been too distracted and/or lazy lately. I haven’t finished nearly as much as I would have liked on my site and I certainly haven’t been studying the way I used to. So to begin, I’m going to refocus my blog topics and attempt to mostly stick to teaching & learning languages, especially French. Foreign languages is one of the few things I’m very passionate about and I love knowing that I can help others learn through the internet. And since I can’t exactly teach French in France, I’m going to try my best to do it online and spread the love of Francophonie to everyone.
I will still post about Chambéry and the Alps from time to time, but if you’d like to see beautiful photos and videos from this area, then I suggest you head over to Cynthia’s blog at www.american-in-france.com. I’m sure I’ll still find some aspects of French culture that boggle my mind, and of course I will keep everyone informed of my love affair with the préfecture and our rocky carte de séjour relationship. (Still no news after 7 months…) But most of my energy is going into helping people learn languages, and HOW to learn them.
As for my website, I am continuing with the IPA for the French tutorials and uploading more listening resources (exercises to come… someday). I would also like to finish the comparative tutorials because there is a serious lack of multilingual learning material on the internet for those of us learning several languages at once. Being bilingual will never be good enough for me!
