Je suis quatorze ans. Q. How's the weather? Comment est le climat? A. The weather is good. Le temp est beau. I have studied these and successfully memorized all of them, by use of flashcards.

As the end date from my 20% time comes closer, I feel pretty nervous about learning all I need to in about a week. Luckily, my mother, who used to speak some French, has agreed to help me. This is good, because my Learning Styles quiz also said that it is easy for me to learn verbally. Also, I discovered a good French app for looking up words in French! Good help in making flashcards!

I read many picture books in french this week. Except they also had the English words next to the french. If I say so my self, I'm getting pretty good at reading french, but not holding conversations. I used flashcards, showing me the word in English, not in french, then saying the world in french, if I know it. I guess I;m getting better, but I definintly need to work on flashcards this week.

This week I compiled a list of useful French phrases and questions, such as 'How are you?' What's your name?' 'I'm Emma' and the likes. These will be the phrases I need to know at the end of my 20% for my final test. I looked up the phrases in French, and all I need to do is transfer them to flashcards, which I didn't do in class do to the lack of those little paper rectangles in Humanities. Goodbye.

Hello! I believe I have begun to learn French! Podcasts were key! I got through three podcasts in one class, so next time I need to: a) Download about five podcasts- I probably won't get through them all, but just in case. b) Make an account on frenchpodcast101.com to reimburse what I learn from my podcasts I listen to.
