My experience learning French
French is wonderful and I’ve been waiting to start learning French at school from Year 3! First, my mum inspired me to learn French from Year 3 onwards because at her school, at my age, she chose French as her language. In Year 4, I started to practise a little bit of French with my mum. In Year 5 & 6, I started my taster languages and in Year 6, I finally got to choose my study language to continue in Secondary school. The option was between French, Italian and German. As for my first language choice, I obviously chose French. For my second, I chose Italian and last but not least I chose German as my final language option.
Now, I’m in Year 7 and I’m having so much fun learning French that I almost never want to leave my French class when the bell rings! I think that the two things that I like most about my French lesson are learning the language itself and my teacher Ms. Michelle Sant. She tries to make the lessons fun even though there is a lot of material to cover. We often watch some French videos during the lesson so that we get to hear and practise the language. I look forward to being able to hold a long conversation in this language which I like so much!

I am a student of French and the first time I got in the class I thought it was going to be a very difficult subject to understand. But as the time passed I realised that it was not that hard if you try to practise continuously and if you follow well what the teacher explains.
I have learned so much in so little time! I hope I keep learning so that I can speak more fluently. It is very important to study and revise. Watching videos and practising online from the many foreign language resources is also essential so that you get the correct pronunciation. I am glad I chose this language as I will soon be visiting France and look forward to being able to communicate in French.
