More on how I got to this place in life in a later posting. Earlier posts below (titled Loving France?) give some hints.
But how does My Life as a Francophile affect me right now?
I work every day to improve my French language skills.
This morning my "alarm" went off. Instead of music, the alarm clock is set to a Pimsleur French CD. Today we learned how to ask for gasoline at a gas station.
On the way into work I listened to the podcast Learn French By Podcast. This is available FREE on Itunes. You can just download it into your ipod and get a lesson on-the-go.
While at work, I listen to live streaming of Radio France. I don't always understand everything, but I pick up phrases here and there, and I hope that I am learning even more by osmosis.
I used to have a French tutor, and I am going to take steps today to hire another one.
Would love to hear of any other tips for learning French, and I will pass on all that I hear.
