Welcome to Week 2! Now that you have a sense of the valuable role the French language plays around the world, you are hopefully starting to feel confident that French is the right language for you. It’s important to reiterate here that learning any language takes time; it isn’t going to come to you overnight. However, one of the advantages of learning French is that there are probably a lot of words you already use regularly that are French in origin. As you progress through this week’s activities you will also discover that understanding basic written French may not be as hard as you think.
