I blogged several months back about my troubles with French. I can now tentatively say that I have something a little more positive to report.
I made a New Year’s resolution to learn French. Most importantly, I’ve found that learning French makes a great break from work because:
- It’s very different from my work
- It doesn’t take much time to do a few flashcards with my program of choice, Byki
- It’s hard enough that going back to work almost feels like a relief.
It’s very early to make any sort of definitive judgement, especially since my university work hasn’t started up again yet1, but it’s looking positive. Stay tuned.
1Though I already feel somewhat snowed under, figuratively speaking.
