    oh dear, french verbs?! I’d love to say yes… but they’re such a nightmare to learn, with all the rules and exceptions. to teach them is even harder…

    Oh well ya know. I’m french, but I’m still learning. So I’d say it takes a life time.

    This is a fantastic …
    This is a fantastic French Lesson, but I am wondering, usually, how long would it take for a normal person (such as myself) to learn French? Its it all depending on the person itself or the lessons…? Because I have French family over in Paris, but none of them speak English, and I want to see them.
    Thank you so much for the videos!! You’ve helped me a lot!

    There is no such thing as a lost cause!
    But it’s not like you absolutely have to pronounce it right. I’m not even sure there is right way to pronounce it. just imitate the best you can. as long as people understand you, it’s ok!
