We spend on average 30 minutes a day on Instagram but all that time shouldn’t have to be useless, I say that you can even learn a bit of french.
I remember the first time I told myself “I think I want to learn French”. It was almost 7 years ago. I didn’t know I was going to be using it 6 years after. But I do wish I should’ve heeded that call so things will be easier now. Fast forward to today and I’m formally learning French in a language school. There is an advantage in doing so, but a lot of people learn by themselves with the right resources and a considerable amount of self
scolding motivation. Here is a list of resources which helped me start beginner French on my own:
I still remember the weeks before I flew to Gibraltar: not even pronouncing the name correctly as how locals do, meet ups with friends for dinner who all ask where exactly is it, me trying to explain that it’s at the southern tip of Spain but isn’t really in Spain but a UK territory, my sister expecting me to see One Direction because it’s part of the UK, me getting tired of explaining it’s location to everyone who hears of the news and asks, googling what Gibraltar looks like with the hopes of seeing what it looks like living there and just seeing photos of the rock.
If you want to know more about wines without paying for an expensive atelier, Caves du Louvre offer a free way to discover french wine using your five senses.
Taking the train from Gare du Nord, Amiens is a 1h15 ride from Paris. We spent one week-end with friends living and working here. It was a cloudy and rainy Saturday with almost no one in the streets. But it is winter and the weather calls for a stay-in kind of day so I do not blame them. The highlight wasn’t the number of people going around though, you cannot expect any other city to be as busy as Parisian streets, but this city has a grandeur of its own.
