The French language is my new addiction. The language, in my own opinion, is very romantic, melodious and enchanting. I already knew its starter packs (words that can make you sound like an expert) like Bonjour, Merci Beaucoup, Excusez-moi, Madamemoselle, and Monsieur, but I started engaging into the language the serious way after watching the “Blue is the Warmest Color” movie. The movie is in French with English subtitle and is about two girls, Adele and Emma, whose friendship turns into romance and relationship. Adele’s life changed when she met Emma, a blue-haired girl. Ever since they met, she discovered her desires and wants in life and relationship. The movie is very captivating because it does not only portray the LGBT world but also the struggles, reality, and choices of being in that kind of relationship. Unfortunately, the movie is a cliff hanger and I think almost everyone who had watched the film was expecting and asking for a second part, which I thought is impossible based on the researches I had gathered.
Anyway, that is the story of how I fell in love with the language. The thing is when I wanted to learn a language there are two things I usually do- watch movies with English subtitle and listen to children songs with English subtitle as well. I spend 30 minutes everyday listening, watching, and memorizing words until I get used to them. But then again, learning multiple languages at once can do no good to you. Based on my impromptu video below, I guess I failed in learning languages.
Please watch the video and let me know if you are also learning new languages and what’s your status right now. Thanks!
