I haven’t had much time to blog lately. My current working novel Silent, a psychological thriller aimed at teenagers and Young Adults, is going well and I’ve covered a good two-thirds of the story.
I’ve taken up French in my spare time – hence, the title of this post. As a classically trained musician, I tend to find language learning easy – the whole thing about hearing the sentences (general meaning) rather than sifting through long lists of words and irregular verbs.
I would compare studying French to learning Mozart on the piano. Mozart has to be precise. French, too, has a precise structure that often revolves around the use of specific pronouns. It’s a great language, relatively easy to gain an overall knowledge of, but like the Mozart piano sonata, pretty difficult to master on a fluency level.
My next goal.
