Here we are again trying to grasp the french language. It is difficult, but easy if you think about it. Many of the words are very similar to english, you just need to know the conjugations and grammar. The grammar is not that bad, but remembering the conjugations is a real treat. Especially if you are older and have a tough time remembering all these things.
On the whole it is a lot of fun and it does get easier the more you study and write papers. It's the speaking that I have a problem.
Oh well, I have the rest of my life to get it right!
