Je ne regrette rien


What a week.

Intensive language learning really does take it out of you.

It’s been a good, though tiring, week.

Feel too mentally knackered to write too much else.

I yo-yo between thinking “wow, I know a fair amount” and then the next minute thinking “I’ve hardly scratched the surface, French is going to take years and years to become half-way fluent in”. I guess language learning is a bit like that.

It’s been tough. Harder than I thought it would be. More mentally taxing. All lessons conducted entirely in French. Homework every day. I’ve been going to bed late most nights.

But I’m enjoying it. I’m loving feeling like a ‘student’ again. It’s been so many years. Dare I say it, I could get used to it, for a year or so.
